Flashcards in Chapter 6 -2 Deck (13):
1

The two parts of photosynthesis are?

Light Reactions
Calvin Cycle

2

What happens in the Light Reaction Part?

The conversion of light energy to chemical energy
and the production of O2 from the splitting of H20

3

What happens in the Calvin Cycle?

The making of organic compounds from inorganic compounds. Uses chemical energy for carbon fixation

4

What kind of light drives photosynthesis?

Visible light

5

What are photons?

pockets of electromagnetic energy

6

What are photons dependent on?

the wave length

7

What are pigments?

light absorbing molecules

8

What happens in black wavelengths?

all wave lengths are absorbed

9

What happens in white wavelengths?

all colors are reflected

10

What are 3 things that can happen with the excited electrons?

Fluorescence
Resonance
Reduction/Oxidation

11

What happens in fluorescence?

Electron falls back to original orbital and releases heat/light

12

What happens in resonance?

Pigments play hot potato, pass energy around

13

What happens in Reduction/Oxidation?

Electron given to another molecule
