Unformatted text preview: One compartment is a fluid-filled space inside the chloroplasts envelope. The disks are a chloroplasts solar power packsthe structures that actually trap light and convert it to chemical energy. 4. In the chloroplast, the membrane holds the disks and tubules that form another compartment. In mitochondria, the inner membrane of the envelope has numerous infoldings in which many of the enzymes and other molecules that function in cellular respiration are built....
