Transcript of The carbon atom - a presentation by Kyle Gregory and Dylan J

The Carbon Atom
During photosynthesis (the light-dependent reactions and the light-independent reactions)
Transitioning between photosynthesis and respiration
During cellular respiration or fermentation
Light - independent reactions
Twelve three - carbon molecules are formed from every 6 carbon dioxide molecule. The three carbon are broken down during a series of reactions. During the reactions some of the atoms bonded to the atom are removed. The energy that is used to make these reaction occur is from the ATP and NADPH. These reactions leave the atoms in the molecule different. Two of the leftover 3-carbon molecules are taken and used to build organic compounds, the other 10 continue throughout the cycle. The two that were taken out are bonded together. This forms a 6-carbon sugar.
Transitioning between photosynthesis and respiration
During cellular respiration
The molecule takes in glucose and also oxygen then goes through fermentation (doesn't need oxygen) and it produces and lets out carbon dioxide.
How the carbon atom is transferred between molecules
The Carbon Atom - A presentation by Kyle Gregory and Dylan Johnson
The light dependent reactions make ADP and also NADPH. They are used in the light independent cycle as energy used to carry on the reactions that break down the 3 carbon molecules.
Dependent reactions
The carbon atom does not change throughout these processes. The carbon atoms are split up and three-carbon molecules are made and go through many different processes. Atoms bonded to the 3-carbon molecules are removed during these processes.
In the light independent reactions (12 - three carbon molecules) are made for every (6 carbon dioxides) that enter the cycle. Those 3 carbon molecules then go through many other processes after that to break them down. Then for every 12 of the three - carbon molecules two are removed to build organic compounds. The rest continue on in the cycle. The two that are removed form a six-carbon sugar by bonding together.
NADPH and ATP, made in the light independent process of photosynthesis are used as energy for the carbon atom. In the light independent reactions NADPH and ATP are used to enable the carbon atoms to go through many processes breaking it down and removing some of the atoms bonded to them. The energy is also used for the synthesis of glucose and other organic molecules.
