Photosynthesis Computer Simulation The Light Dependent Reactions This activity is loaded on the Science Computer Lab computers. It is also available at http://www.mhhe.com/biosci/genbio/biolink/j_explorations/explorations.html Getting Started— Open the Cell Biology and Genetics icon. Wait for the program to load. Click on Menu . Click on Photosynthesis . The Model —You will see a diagram of a thylakoid within a chloroplast . Embedded in the membrane of the thylakoid are five integral proteins and sitting along the inner and outer edges of the thylakoid membrane are six peripheral proteins . These proteins perform several functions to drive the light dependent reactions of photosynthesis. The Controls —To the left of the thylakoid model is a group of two controls (light intensity and wavelength) and three gauges (time, # of ATP, and % maximal ATP). The light intensity scale is in lux (10 2 ). Lux stands for lumens/m 2 . It is one of a few units used to measure light intensity. To save space, 40 lux on the simulation scale is actually 4,000 lux and 200 lux is

    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.
