Unformatted text preview: e-s are boosted into a higher orbit allowing their energy to be used to create ATP. This energy is also used to create NADPH+ while ADP and NADP are being used. This process is a redox reaction cause oxygen to be released, which comes from molecules of water. Within C3 and C4 plants carbon dioxide enters the stomata by diffusing from intercellular spaced into mesophyll. Dark reaction occurs within the stroma. Energy from ATP is used in this process; Energy from NADP is reused. C3 plants have palisade and spongy mesophyll; C4 plants have functional mesophyll around the bundle sheaths, and they have Kranz anatomy, chloroplasts in bundle sheath cells. C3 plants combine carbon dioxide with RuBP while C$ plants combing carbon dioxide with PEP. C4 plants also use the CAM pathway....
