Identify the photosynthesis process in the following image:
In respiration energy is released fromsugars when electrons associated with hydrogen are transported to oxygen (theelectron acceptor), and water is formed as a byproduct. The mitochondriause the energy released in this oxidation in order to synthesize ATP. Inphotosynthesis, the electron flow is reversed, the water is split (not formed),and the electrons are transferred from the water to CO2 and in theprocess the energy is used to reduce the CO2 into sugar. Inrespiration the energy yield is 686 kcal per mole of glucose oxidized to CO2,while photosynthesis requires 686 kcal of energy to boost the electrons from thewater to their high-energy perches in the reduced sugar -- light provides thisenergy.
How many gases are involved in the process of photosynthesis?
The first prokaryotes appeared around 3 BILLION years ago!
Prokaryotes provide the essential ecological service of liberating nutrients needed for photosynthesis and thus are sustainers of life.
The non-absorbed part of the light spectrum is what gives photosynthetic organisms their colour (e.g., green plants, red algae, purple bacteria) and is the least effective for photosynthesis in the respective organisms. In plants, light-dependent reactions occur in the thylakoid membranes of the chloroplasts and use light energy to synthesize ATP and NADPH.
What does the sunlight provide in the photosynthesis process?
Electrons pump more Hydrogen’s into the thylakoid space,
The Calvin Cycle’s goal is to produce sugar, G3P which is later used in creation of glucose and proteins which are used in the mitochondria to create ATP for cellular use.
Recycle of NADP+ and ADP to the thylakoids.
Allows plants to be photoautotrophic, or self-feeding through the use of lights.
There are many factors that can hurt or help photosynthesis.
How many steps does the photosynthesis process have?
Of course plant cells contain
mitochondria that can respire fuels like glucose, in a chemoheterotrophic manner, but the glucose was first manufactured by
the plant photoautotrophically in photosynthesise, so light remains the primary energy source.
In the process of Photosynthesis what do plants absorb?
Chlorophyll only triggers a chemical reaction when itis associated with proteins embedded in a membrane (as in achloroplast) or the membrane infoldings found in photosyntheticprokaryotes such as cyanobacteria and prochlorobacteria.Images from W.H.
Cyanobacteria-prokaryotes with plant-like oxygen generating ..
Cyanobacteria remain critical to marine ecosystems as primary producers in oceanic gyres, as agents of biological nitrogen fixation, and, in modified form, as the plastids of marine algae. The overall process of photosynthesis takes place in four stages.
