Photosynthesis-conversion of light energy into organic molecules; redox process, water oxidized and carbon dioxide reduced to sugar Autotrophs-can make own food Heterotrophs-cannot make own food Chlorophyll-green pigment located in chloroplasts; absorbs light energy for photosynthesis Mesophyll-tissue of leaf interior Stomata-pores in which carbon dioxide enters Stroma-fluid in chloroplast Thylakoids-interconnected membrane sacs of chloroplast Light Reactions-processes in which light energy converted into chemical energy; water is split and oxygen is given off as a byproduct Calvin Cycle-carbon from carbon dioxide fixed into glucose Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide Phosphate (NADP+)-electron carrier Phosphorylation-phosphate group added to ADP to convert it into ATP Carbon Fixation-incorporate carbon into organic compounds Wavelength-distance between crests of electromagnetic waves Electromagnetic Spectrum-range of radiation
