Photosynthesis Photosynthesis converts solar energy into chemical energy Plants are photoautotrophs Figure 10.1 Heterotrophs Are the consumers of the biosphere Chloroplasts: The Sites of Photosynthesis in Plants Major sites of photosynthesis Figure 10.3 Chloroplasts photosynthesis contain thylakoids and grana Figure 10.3 Photosynthesis Photosynthesis is summarized as 6CO 2  + 12H 2 O + Light energy   C 6 H 12 O 6  + 6O 2  + 6H 2 The Splitting of Water Enzymes in the chloroplasts split water into hydrogen and oxygen Figure 10.4 Photosynthesis as a Redox Process Photosynthesis is a redox process Water is oxidized, carbon dioxide is reduced An overview of photosynthesis Figure 10.5 The light reactions occur in the grana split water release oxygen
