biology II-12

Light Dependent Reaction Chlorophyll molecules in photosystems that captures light energy and transfers the energy to ATP and carrier molecules
Light Independent Reaction Reactions to build carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water using energy captured during the light dependent reactions
Calvin Cycle Another name for light independent reactions
Chloroplast Organelle in plants where photosynthesis occurs
Thylakoid Stacks of membrane bags in chloroplasts where chlorophyll is embedded; site of light reaction
Stroma Fluid surrounding thylakoids; site of light independent reaction
Photosystem Collection of light capturing molecules found in thylakoids
Chlorophyll Main light capturing molecule for photosynthesis; reflects green wavelengths
Carrier Molecules Special molecules capable of moving high energy electrons around the cell
Heterotrophs (hetero= other, troph= nutrition) Organisms that obtain energy by eating other organisms or their products
Photosynthesis (photo= light, syn= join) Series of chemical reactions that use light energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into high energy carbohydrates, autotrophs only
Cell Respiration Chemical reactions to transfer energy stored in sugars and other food to ATP; releases carbon dioxide
ATP (adenosine TRIphosphate) Temporary high energy molecule for cell fuel with three phoshates
ADP (adenosine diphophate) Stable lower energy molecule with two phosphates; is converted to ATP

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
