1

What is photosynthesis?

A series of reactions that occur in planta to make our food (glucose) and O2 (oxygen)

2

Photosynthesis occurs in what organelle in the plant cell?

Chloroplast

3

What are the overall reactants of photosynthesis?

Sunlight
Water
Carbon Dioxide

4

What are the overall products?

Glucose
Oxygen

5

Photosynthesis can be dividen into 2 phases or reactions. What are they?

Light Phase and Dark Phase

6

The chloroplast is composed of what two structures?

Grana: composed of several thylakoids

Stroma

7

Where is the chlorophyll found?

In the thylakoids inside the chloroplast.

8

The light phase occurs in what structure of the chloroplast?

Thylakoids

9

The dark phase occurs in what structure of the chloroplast?

Stroma

10

What happens in the light phase of photosynthesis?

Oxygen and the reactants (nadph and atp) for the dark phase are produced.

11

What are the reactants for the light phase?

Sunlight and water

12

In what part of the chloroplast does the dark phase occur?

Stroma

13

What are the reactants for the dark phase?

NADPH
ATP
CO2

14

What is the product of the dark phase?

Glucose

15

What is the overall formula for photosynthesis?

Reactants ————-> Products

Water + CO2 + Sunlight <=> Glucose + Oxygen
