Process by which autotrophs, algae and plant, trap energy from sunlight with chorophyll and use this energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into simple sugars.
Formula
6CO2+6H2O > C6H12O6 + 6O2
Organisms
Plants, Protozoan, Algae
Organelle
Chlorplast
Light Dependent Reaction
phase of photosynthesis where light energy is converted to chemical energy in form of ATP
Chlorophyll
in forms a and b avsorbs most wavelengths of light except for green
Electron transport chain
highly, energized, or excited, electrons are passed from chlorophyll
ATP
energy molecule
NADP
electron carrier molecule
Photolysis
reaction taking place in the thylakoid membranes of a choroplast during light-dependent reactions where two molecules of water are split to form oxygen, hydrogen, ions, and electrons
Light independent Reaction
phase of photosynthesis
