During this process, the light energy iscaptures by plants and is used to convert water, carbon dioxide and other minerals intooxygen and glucose which then plants further use for nourishment.Answer # 2PSI and PS II are two types of photosystems. They both contain many pigments that not onlyhelp in collecting light energy but special pair chlorophyll molecules as well. Thesemolecules are found at the reaction center that is known to be the core of the photosystem.Answer # 3Dark reactions are those/any chemical reactions that do not require lights to process and takeplace during second stage of photosynthesis. During these, energy released from ATP drivesthe fixation of carbon from carbon dioxide in organic molecules.
