Part 1:  The Light Reactions

Questions to answer:

  1. Explain the relationship between the light reactions and the Calvin cycle in photoautotrophs.
  2. What is the function of the Magnesium atom in a chlorophyll molecule?
  3. Where do replacement electrons come from in photosystem II?
  4. Diagram the flow of an electron from photosystem II to eventually winding up in a molecule of NADPH.
  5. Explain how ATP is produced in photosynthesis.
  6. Why are plants green in color?
