1

What is photosynthesis and where does it occur

What: Where plants and autotrophs take in light energy and use it to combine CO2, and H2O. This all together turns into Sugar and O2.
Where: In chloroplasts

2

What is a reactant and where does it occur

What- Things that enter into a chemical reaction
Where- In chloroplast or science experiments

3

What is chloroplast and where is it located

What- Organelles found in Autotroph cells that carry put photosynthesis
where- Found in plant cells

4

What are products and where do they occur

What- The outcome of a chemical reaction
Where- Inside of the cell

5

What is chlorophyll and where is it located

What- The green pigment that gives plants their color
Where- Found in Chloroplast

6

What is an autotroph

An organism that makes its own food (usually through photosynthesis)

7

What is the formula for photosynthesis

6CO2 (Reactant) + 6H2O (Reactant) equals to C6H12O6 (Product) + 6O2 (Product)

8

ATP

Serves as a long term energy storage that can be made of glucose.

9

What is Grana

A stack of thylakoids that are inside of the chloroplast.

10

What is Stroma?

The gel like fluid that contains all of the organelles inside of the chloroplast

11

What are thylakoids

The individual plates that are stacked together to create granum.

12

What is the Lamella

The stick like things that connect Granum (not important)
