Photosynthesis Problem Set 1
Problem 8 Tutorial: Equation for light reactionWhich of the following is the equation for the light reaction of photosynthesis?
Summary of equations for the light reactions
During the light reactions, water is oxidized, electrons are transferred from water to NADP+, and ATP is synthesized. The three components of the light reaction can be summarized with equations:
2 H2O + 2 NADP+ + nADP + nPi + hv O2 + 2 NADPH + 2 H+ + nATP
