Photosynthesis Problem Set 1

Problem 6: Events during light reactions


What three events occur during the light reactions of photosynthesis?
A energy of electron transport in the thylakoid membrane

B oxidation of water, reduction of NADP+, formation of ATP

This is a nice summary of the light reactions.

C oxidation of water, recuction of NADP+, hydrolysis of ATP

D fixation of carbon dioxide, release of oxygen, synthesis of glucose

E release of oxygen, fixation of carbon dioxide, hydrolysis of ATP
