Photosynthesis

autotrophs - produce their own food

before, ATP, there is ADP - 2 phosphate groups, not 3.

heterotrophs - consume others for food

energy is the ability to do work

photosynthesis

chemical energy and ATP

adenosine triphosphate (ATP) stores and releases energy

plants use the energy of sunlight to convert water and carbon dioxide into high-energy carbohydrates

van Helmont, Priestley, and Ingenhousz led to work by other scientists who finally discovered that in the presence of light, plants transform carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates, and they also release oxygen.

pigment - light absorbing molecule

chlorophyll, a and b

thylakoid, arranged in granum in a chloroplast

light dependent cycle and light independent - calvin cycle

NADP+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate)one of the carrier molecules that transfers high-energy electrons from chlorophyll to other molecule

light-dependent reactions produce oxygen gas and convert ADP and NADP+ into the energy carriers ATP and NADPH.

l light-dependent reactions produce oxygen gas and convert ADP and NADP+ into the energy carriers ATP and NADPH.
