1. Process by whichplants and some otherorganisms use lightenergy to convertwater and carbondioxide into oxygenand high energycarbohydrates assugars and starches.It also occurs in theplant, algae and manyspecies of bacteria.
2. The project that I choose is photosynthesisand the reason why I choose this projectwas because it really interested me on howphotosynthesis works and how isphotosynthesis useful for use as humansand as plants 3. Photosynthesis takes place in thechloroplast and in the chlorophyII ChlorophyII is what gives the leafs thecolor they are Also photosynthesis has 2 parts to it: -- light dependent reaction -- light independent reactions 4. The light-dependent reactionsis the first stage ofphotosynthesis. This processcapture and store energy fromsunlight and light energy isconverted into chemicalenergy and this energy is in theform of a molecule. The light-dependent reactions takeplace in the inside achloroplast. Chloroplast areorganelle that convert light toenergy. This energy released bythe molecules is calledadenosine triphosphate or ATP. 5. The light-independentreactions of photosynthesisare chemical reactions thatconvert carbon dioxide andother compounds intoglucose. The energyreleased from ATP drives thismetabolic pathway. It isdescribed to be light-independent as it proceedsregardless of the amount oflight available. The term isused in contrast to light-dependent reaction ofphotosynthesis. 6. first of all plants areimportant to the lifebecause thats somewhere animals andhumans get oxygenfrom. Photosynthesis isthe one that give plantswith food and energy.Animals are the onesthat eat the plant. Forhumans we breathe inoxygen and we exhalecarbon dioxide. 7. The formula is :6CO +6H O 2 2C H O +60 6 12 6 2 8. This is a picture of the Calvin cycleTHIS IS HOW THE CALVIN CYCLE IS WORKING AND HOW IT ENDS UP BY GLUCOSE 9. http://www.google.com/imgres?q=photosynthesis+light+dependent+reactions&hl=en&sa=X&rlz=1R2SKPT_enUS446&biw=1366&bih=562&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&tbnid=bprn9omHTmRPjM:&imgrefurl=http://staff.jccc.net/pdecell/photosyn/lightreact.html&docid=fTrTGo2AZtxEfM&imgurl=http://staff.jccc.net/pdecell/photosyn/lightdep.gif&w=542&h=425&ei=qT3UToScGefbiALbJGlDg&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=217&sig=107195830697580946278&page=1&tbnh=113&tbnw=144&start=0&ndsp=21&ved=1t:429,r:2, http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://apbiologydodd.wikispaces.com/file/view/photosynthesis.gif/32364171/photosynthesis.gif&imgrefurl=http://apbiologydodd.wikispaces.com/Cellular%2BRespiration%2526Photosynthesis&h=400&w=320&sz=61&tbnid=7IgIR1uAqvIUvM:&tbnh=90&tbnw=72&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dphotosynthesis%26tbm%3Disch%26tbo%3Du&zoom=1&q=photosynthesis&docid=T6q2SMGTdtZPpM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=mTrUTuawNOKoiALq74C5Dg&ved=0CFgQ9QEwBws:0&tx=80&ty=74 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photosynthesis http://biology.clc.uc.edu/courses/bio104/photosyn.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light-independent_reactions 10.
