Provide the overall
equation of photosynthesis.
cellular structures and chemical reactions involved in photosynthesis
including the reactions that take place during the
light reactions and Calvin cycle
LIGHT REACTIONS & CALVIN CYCLE
- 2 stages, Light reactions and Clavin cycle.
– Chlorophyll in the Thylakroid absorbs solor energy, converts it into
chemical energy ATP and NADPH(electron carrier) light drives electrons from water to
NADPH. During the light reactions the water is split providing electrons and giving off
(no sugar is produced during light reactions).
Calvin Cycle –
Uses the products from light reactions to power production of sugar from
