Angela Joy R.Villapando, Kyla Sandy C._________________________________________________________________________INTRODUCTIONPhotosynthesis is the mechanism through which organisms, with the manifestation of an energybeing contracted in the form of NADPH OR NADH and as well as ATP. These chemicals will bethen utilized to transform energy into chemical energy and wield these chemicals to acceleratethe absorption and reduction of carbon dioxide in order to generate sugars. The production ofsugar will serve as a raw material for the biosynthesis of the organic molecules that are found inplants. The process transpires in chloroplasts, the most prominent organelle located in leaf cells.To navigate the fusion of NADPH and ATP, it will occur in the complex system of thylakoidmembranes. The reaction process of the carbon dioxide fixation and reduction on the other handwill be catalyzed by the soluble enzymes of the stroma. Photosynthesis is a complex phenomenathat sustains the biosphere as the grounds for food chain. With the aid of this study, theresearchers aim to provide awareness about the said subject for the mass to be knowledgeableabout one of the prominent phenomenons in nature. In order for this goal to be oriented, theresearchers set out their objectives for this study:
Far Eastern UniversityNicanor Reyes StreetSampaloc, Manila(i)Identify the types of photosynthesis(ii)Differentiate the photosynthetic apparatus(iii)Explain the light-dependent reaction(iv)Explain the Calvin CycleMETHODOLOGYThe laboratory report held with respect made use of qualitative measures in order to meet theaims of this research. Numerous pieces of textbooks related to Photosynthesis as well as theInternet specifically Google played a vital role in gathering data. An apprehensive studies wasthen conducted. Laboratory exercises were provided and division of labor was distributed amongthe researchers. After collecting and coming into a credible conclusion, results were theninterpreted in a descriptive manner.
Far Eastern UniversityNicanor Reyes StreetSampaloc, ManilaRESULTS AND DISCUSSIONSIn order for the plants to accumulate food, a process called photosynthesis need to occur.Photosynthesis according to Bassham and Lambers (2020) are the process of green plants to turnlight energy to chemical energy. The plants collect light, carbon dioxide, water and otherminerals to transform it into organic compounds and emit oxygen. Without photosynthesis it mayaffect how the plants will live and as well the other living organism for this process dischargeoxygen which is needed by humans and it take carbon dioxide which is beneficiary to human asit lessen the CO2in the atmosphere.
