1

PSN equation

Light Energy+CO2+H2O----> carbohydrates+O2

2

PSN occurs in the _____.

chloroplasts

3

Carbohydrates

primary energy source in all living organisms

4

Respiration

Carbohydrates+ O2-----> H2O + CO2 +energy (ATP)

5

Respiration occurs in the ______.

cristae and the mitochondria

6

Light reactions

the steps in PSN when photon energy is converted to chemical bond energy, but NO carbohydrates are formed

7

Photophosphorylation

forming of ATP's in PSN

8

Synthesis reactions/ Light independent/ Calvin Cycle/ Dark reaction

builds CO2 into carbohydrates using ATP

9

Rubisco

to fix carbon dioxide and the most abundant enzyme. Used to create glucose

10

Synthesis Reactions occur in the _________.

stroma

11

Light Reactions (simplified)

oxidation- loses e-
reduction- gains e-

12

PSN is the oxidation of carbohydrates (releasing energy)

.

13

Light Reaction/chemosmosis

2 Photons+NADP+H2O--->NADPH+H+1/2 O2

Photon energy+ADP+P1--->ATP+H2O

14

Light Reactions occur in the ____________.

thylakoid stacks

15

C3

Calvin Cycle

16

C4

Deeper in leaf (Dry/warm) Day and night

17

CAM/C4

Only at night (fewer stomates)
