1 PHOTOSYNTHESIS

2 Photosynthesis anabolic, endergonic, carbon dioxide (CO 2 )light energy (photons)water (H 2 O)organic macromolecules (glucose).An anabolic, endergonic, carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) requiring process that uses light energy (photons) and water (H 2 O) to produce organic macromolecules (glucose). 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O  C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 glucose SUN photons

3 Question: Where does photosynthesis take place?Where does photosynthesis take place?

4 Plants Autotrophs:Autotrophs: self-producers. Location: 1.Leaves a.stoma b.mesophyll cells Stoma Mesophyll Cell Chloroplast

5 Stomata (stoma) Poreswater gasesPores in a plant’s cuticle through which water and gases are exchanged between the plant and the atmosphere. Guard Cell Carbon Dioxide (CO 2 ) Oxygen (O 2 )

6 Mesophyll Cell Cell Wall Nucleus Chloroplast Central Vacuole

7 Chloroplast OrganellephotosynthesisOrganelle where photosynthesis takes place. Granum Thylakoid Stroma Outer Membrane Inner Membrane

8 Thylakoid Thylakoid Membrane Thylakoid Space Granum

9 Question: Why are plants green?Why are plants green?

10 Chlorophyll Molecules thylakoid membranesLocated in the thylakoid membranes. Mg +Chlorophyll have Mg + in the center. Chlorophyll pigments absorbingwavelengthsblue-420 nmChlorophyll pigments harvest energy (photons) by absorbing certain wavelengths (blue-420 nm and red-660 nm are most important). Plantsgreen wavelengthreflectednot absorbedPlants are green because the green wavelength is reflected, not absorbed.

11 Wavelength of Light (nm) Short waveLong wave (more energy)(less energy)

12 Absorption of Chlorophyll wavelength Absorption violet blue green yellow orange red

13 Question: During the fall, what causes the leaves to change colors?During the fall, what causes the leaves to change colors?

14 Fall Colors pigmentsIn addition to the chlorophyll pigments, there are other pigments present. green chlorophyll greatly reduced pigmentsDuring the fall, the green chlorophyll pigments are greatly reduced revealing the other pigments. Carotenoidsred yellowCarotenoids are pigments that are either red or yellow.
