Light-independent and Light-dependent reactions ATP is produced and transported to the light-independent process. The ATP from the Light-dependent reaction is used to combine 6 carbon dioxide molecules with other carbon-based molecules that are already in the chloroplast. Three carbon compounds are created. The three-carbon molecules get broken down through a series of reactions. For every 12 three-carbon molecules that are made, 2 are used to build organic compounds(10 left). The two molecules that were removed are used to make sixe-carbon sugar like glucose.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
