Term s m ay be used once, m ore than once, or not at all. Hin t 1. Review of redox reactions and terminology Under mos t c irc ums tanc es , redox reac tions oc c ur in pairs . In one reac tion, the elec tron donor is ox idiz ed (it los es elec trons ). In the other reac tion, the elec tron ac c eptor is reduc ed (it gains the elec trons los t by the firs t c ompound). Thes e two reac tions oc c ur s imultaneous ly . A generic redox reac tion s howing the trans fer of two elec trons is illus trated here. Note that c ompounds A and B eac h ex is t in two forms : One form is reduc ed (it c arries the ex tra elec trons ); the other form is ox idiz ed (it does not c arry the ex tra elec trons ). In the reac tions s hown here, the elec tron donor is the reduc ed form of c ompound A, and the elec tron ac c eptor is the ox idiz ed form of c ompound B. Hin t 2. How is redox energy transferred from the light reactions to the Calvin cycle? In the light reac tions , the energy of s unlight is c onv erted to redox energy . This redox energy is trans ferred to the Calv in c y c le in the form of a reduc tant that prov ides elec trons for reduc ing other c ompounds . Which of the following m olecules shuttles electrons from the light reactions to the Calvin cycle? ANSWER: ADP A TP NADPH NADP+ Hin t 3. What is the original electron donor...
