Light Dependent Reaction

HideShow resource information
What are the 3 end products of LDR
NADPH, ATP and Oxygen
1 of 11
How does light energy present itself?
As Photons
2 of 11
Where in the Chloroplast does LDR occur?
Thylakoid Membrane
3 of 11
How is the water from the roots split?
Via Photolysis
4 of 11
How is NADP reduced to form NADPH?
NADP + 2H+ + 2e-
5 of 11
Why are plants green?
The chlorophyll within the chloroplasts reflects green light
6 of 11
What happens to the electrons when the photons reach the plant
They raise into a higher energy level
7 of 11
When this occurs what happens to the electrons?
They leave the Thylakoid Membrane and enter the process of the electron transport Chain
8 of 11
What is the reaction called when the pair of electrons pass through the electron carriers (proteins)?
Redox Reaction
9 of 11
The charge of the chlorophyll is 2+ as 2 electrons have left, how does it return to its natural state?
By the addition of the electrons from the hydrogen atoms
10 of 11
How is ATP formed?
Through the energy "lost" from the electron transport chain
