Photosynthesis Answer Sheet 1) Write out the chemical equation that summarizes photosynthesis. light 6CO2 + 12H2O -----------> C6H12O6 + 6O2 + 6H2O chlorophyll 2) Where specifically does photosynthesis take place? In the chloroplast of the plant 3) What pigments take part in photosynthesis? Chlorophylls and carotenoids 4) What wavelengths of light do the pigments absorb? Reflect? Chlorophyll absorbs red, blue and violet Reflects green Carotenoids absorb blue and green Reflect orange and yellow 5) Name the two phases of photosynthesis. Light dependent reaction Light independent reaction 6) Name the two types of light dependent reactions. cyclic light dependent reaction non cyclic light dependent reaction 7) How do they differ? Cyclic light dependent reaction – Excited electrons enter a electron transport system, make ATP and return to the same

Unformatted text preview: chlorophyll Non cyclic light dependent reaction Excited electrons enter an ETS and are passed to a second photosystem-Water is split to replace the lost electrons- this produces O2 8) What is made in the cyclic LDR? It only produces ATP. 9) What is produced in the non cyclic LDR? It produces O2 and NADPH as well as ATP 10) What reactant from the summary equation is used in the light dependent reaction? HINT- look at equation in #1. The reactant used in the noncyclic LDR is water 11) What product of the summary equation is made in the noncyclic LDR? oxygen 12) Another name for the light independent reaction is Calvin Benson Cycle. 13) What reactant from our summary equation is used in the light independent reaction? CO2 enters the LIR 14) What product is removed from the LIR and used to make glucose? PGAL...
