Transcript of Photosynthesis Concept Map

By: Bella Dougherty, Jon Yandle,
and Karli Kolinchak Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration Photosynthsis process by which plants and some other organisms use light energy to power chemical reactions that convert water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and high-energy carbohydrates such as sugars and starches Dark Reactions The series of biochemical reactions
in photosynthesis that do not require
light to proceed, and ultimately
produce organic molecules from
carbon dioxide. Light Dependent Reactions The reaction taking place in the
chloroplast in which the absorption
of a photon leads to the formation of ATP and NADPH. The prime energy source for photosynthesis, in photosynthesis the plant uses the energy that the sun gives off and absorbs it and turns it into energy. Sunlight Chloroplast takes place in the organelle found in cells of plants and some other organisms that uses energy from sunlight to make energy-rich food molecules by photosynthesis Stroma Thylakoid Granum Takes place in Takes place in stack of them performed by Autotrophs Chlorophyll the collective term of a stack
of thylakoids within the chloroplasts of plant cells Chlorophyll is the green pigment found in plants. It is located in the chloroplast. It is green because it reflects off green light from the sun. membranous cisternae of the chloroplast, found as part of the grana and also as single cisternae interconnecting the grana. Contains the photosynthetic pigments, reaction centres and [[electron Transport chain]]. Each thylakoid consists of a flattened sac of membrane enclosing a narrow intra thylakoid space. Glucose Self Feeding Organisms which can create their own energy. Plants can do this through photosynthesis and cellular respiration. product of C0 2 main energy source of Co2 is converted into sugar using NADPH and ATP. This occurs as a dark reaction. The matrix of the chloroplast which is a thick fluid in between grana where various enzymes, molecules and ions are found, and where the dark reaction (or carbohydrate formation reactions) of photosynthesis occurs. NADPH used in A form of energy formed as a product of dark reactions. coverts light

ATP reactant of includes contains Sunlight comes in and turns into a form of potential energy and is stored in the form of chemical bonds. Water reactant product Cellular
