1

What happens in light harvesting complexes?

pigments capture solar energy

2

What happens in the reaction center?

2 chlorophyll a
e's excited by photon energy

3

Where does the Calvin cycle occur?

in stroma

4

What do light dependent reactions involve?

electron flow and ATP formation

5

What happens in the noncyclic pathway?

electron is not returned and ATP & NADPH is produced

6

What happens in the cyclic pathway?

electron is returned

7

Overall what do light harvesting pigments do?

Absorb photons and transfer energy to P680

8

What does PSII trigger?

H+ accumulation and ATP production

9

What does PSI result in?

NADPH production

10

What happens in the Cyclic Electron Flow?

Involves only PSI
Produces only ATP
