  • Photosynthesis

    Photosynthesis is a process through which plants and some certain types of bacteria get energy from the sun’s UV-rays and use it to create and store sugar that is transformed into ATP by cellular respiration later on in the process. In plants‚ this process takes place in chloroplasts‚ which concentrate in the mesophyll cells‚ with the help of chlorophyll‚ the green pigment‚ which is directly involved in photosynthesis. It is important to understand that we see leaves green simply because the green

    Photosynthesis Green plants absorb light energy using chlorophyll in their leaves. They use it to react carbon dioxide with water to make a sugar called glucose. The glucose is used in respiration‚ or converted into starch and stored. Oxygen is produced as a by-product. This process is called photosynthesis. Temperature‚ carbon dioxide concentration and light intensity are factors that can limit the rate of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis summary Photosynthesis [photosynthesis: The chemical change

    Photosynthesis (pron.: /foʊtoʊˈsɪnθəsɪs/; from the Greek φώτο- [photo-]‚ "light‚" and σύνθεσις [synthesis]‚ "putting together"‚ "composition") is a process used by plants and other organisms to convert the light energy captured from the sun into chemical energy that can be used to fuel the organism’s activities. Photosynthesis occurs in plants‚ algae‚ and many species of bacteria‚ but not in archaea. Photosynthetic organisms are called photoautotrophs‚ since they can create their own food. In plants

    All green parts of a plant have chloroplasts. However‚ the leaves are the major site of photosynthesis for most plants. There are about half a million chloroplasts per square millimeter of leaf surface. The color of a leaf comes from chlorophyll‚ the green pigment in the chloroplasts. Chlorophyll plays an important role in the absorption of light energy during photosynthesis. Chloroplasts are found mainly in mesophyll cells forming the tissues in the interior of the leaf. O2 exits and CO2 enters

    effect of differing wavelengths of visible light on the photosynthetic activity of Beta vulgaris Introduction Photosynthesis is a crucial biological process that occurs within the chloroplasts of plant cells where CO2 + H2O + Sunlight C6H12O6 + O2. The chloroplasts use light‚ an electromagnetic energy source‚ to produce food for the plant in the form of sugar molecules. During photosynthesis‚ the excited electrons from the light pass through proteins in the electron transport chain (ETC)‚ where ATP

  • Chlorophyll and Photosynthesis

    Photosynthesis Matt Lazar 5/13/96 8th Hr. When you and me eat‚ we find our food. When plants eat‚ they make their own food and energy. They make their food and energy through a process called photosynthesis. Through photosynthesis oxygen is also produced. Photosynthesis is "a process in which green plants synthesize carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water....The reverse of this reaction provides energy for plants‚ for animals that eat plants‚ for animals that eat animals that eat plants"

    affect Photosynthesis? Introduction: Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to synthesize foods from carbon dioxide and water. Photosynthesis in plants generally involves the green pigment chlorophyll and generates oxygen as a byproduct. It produces sugar and other organic compounds such as lipids and proteins. The sugars are then used to provide energy for the organism. Light reaction is the series of biochemical reactions in photosynthesis that
