Photosynthesis By: Nicole KOrtan

Photosynthesis is when the sun's energy is converted into chemical energy for the cell to use.

~This is a picture of the electron transport process~

The first stage of photosynthesis is the light dependent reaction. During this stage light energy is converted to ATP and NADPH.
Next, light is absorbed by the two photosystems which is then given to the electrons for energy.
In photosystem ll an electron becomes exited because of the higher energy level it becomes unstable so another electron is released
In photosystem l, the electron gets more energy and the electrons combine with the hydrogen ion to form NADP+ to produce NADPH

~The second part of Photosynthesis is the Calvin Cycle~

A molecule of carbon dioxide is combined with a molecule of RuBP this forms a 6-carbon intermediate

The 6-carbon intermediate then breaks down to form 3-carbon molecules

The 3-carbon molecules then receive energy from ATP and produce two molecules of 1, 3-BPGA
Lastly it creates sugars for the plant
