6PhotosynthesisPhotosynthesis uses the energy of sunlight to convert water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and high-energy sugars.
7CHLOROPHYLL= a molecule within a chloroplast Light and PigmentsIn addition to water and carbon dioxide, photosynthesis also requires LIGHT and CHLOROPHYLL.CHLOROPHYLL= a molecule within a chloroplastChlorophyll is a pigment that absorbs light

92 Stages of Photosynthesis Light Reactions—In the ThylakoidsLight Energy (from the sun) is converted to chemical energy, which is temporarily stored in ATP and the energy carrier molecule NADPH.Calvin Cycle—In the StromaA series of enzyme-assisted chemical reactions that produces a three-carbon sugar.
10Inside a Chloroplast Photosynthesis takes place inside a chloroplast The chloroplast contains saclike membranes called THYLAKOIDSTHYLAKOIDS are arranged in stacks called GRANAThe Chlorophyll is inside the thylakoidsThe STROMA is the region outside of the thylakoids
12The first stage of photosynthesis is the LIGHT REACTIONS. Light is absorbed by the chloroplastsLight Energy is converted to Chemical Energy (stored in ATP and NADPH)
13Light Reactions Continued Oxygen is given off during this reaction. --Leaf Demo--Chlorophyll in the chloroplast contains pigments (compounds that absorb light) that absorb a lot of blue and red light but reflect green light (giving plants their green color.
14Light Reactions Continued An oxidation reaction takes place, losing electrons and the primary electron acceptor takes on the lost electrons in a reduction reaction.The primary electron acceptor donates the electrons to a series of molecules in the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast.
15Oxygen as Byproduct Demo Submerge a live leaf in a bowl of water, observe after 30 min.

17Dark Reactions/Calvin Cycle In the second set of reactions in photosynthesis plants use the energy that was stored in ATP and NADPH during the light reactions to produce sugars.Most common way this is done is called the CALVIN CYCLE.Calvin Cycle Song!Sciencemusic videos
184 Steps of the Calvin Cycle 3 CO2 molecules diffuse into the stroma and combine with a 5-Carbon molecule, RuBP. This molecule is very unstable and it quickly splits into 2 3-Carbon molecules called 3- PGA.Each 3-PGA is converted into another 3 Carbon molecule, G3P after receiving a phosphate group from ATP and a proton from NADPH.Step 1Step 2
194 Steps of the Calvin Cycle One of the G3P molecules leave the Calvin Cycle to make carbohydrates which are stored for later use.The remaining 3GP molecules are converted back into RuBP by adding phosphate groups from ATP and then the Calvin Cycle begins again.Step 3Step 4
20Step 1—3 CO2 molecules combine to form RuBP (6 carbon molecule) which splits into 3 PGA Step 4– The rest of the G3P is converted back into RuBP/RubiscoCalvin CycleStep 3– One molecule of G3P leaves the cycle to make sugarsStep 2—Each molecule of 3 PGA is converted to G3P
21Factors Affecting Photosynthesis Water, Temperature, Intensity of Light all affect the rate of photosynthesis
