Like respiration, photosynthesis involves an exchange of gasses. It’s the opposite exchange as  respiration.  Photosynthesis = CO2 in and O2 out  Photosynthesis involves special organelles called chloroplasts. The energy from absorbing a  photon of light is used to power an electron pump used to make ATP. The protein that absorbs  the photon and is therefore responsible for the kind of light the plant can use is chlorophyll.  Different chlorophylls absorb different kinds of light.  PART A - Chromatography with grass slurry  Since chromatography can be used to separate compounds we can use it to separate  chlorophylls from the rest of the compounds in the plant. We will do chromatography with grass  slurry to see how many different chlorophylls are present.  PART B - Light Reactions in Chloroplasts
