Oriole IB Photosynth

photosynthesis vocab & process

ATP energy currency of living cells; produced during PS2 and used during step 3 to make glucose
CALVIN CYCLE third step/stage of photosynthesis; uses energy from ATP & NADPH to convert CO2 into glucose
CARBON DIOXIDE atmospheric gas that attaches to RuBP in step 3 so that G3P (PGAL) can be formed and then made into glucose
CHLOROPHYLL green pigment found in chloroplasts; absorbs light and transfers energy to ATP & NADPH in steps 1 & 2
CHLOROPLAST plant cell organelle that performs photosynthesis so that glucose can be made from CO2 & water
G3P produced during step 3 of photosynthesis and is used to make glucose and re-make RuBP
GLUCOSE six-carbon sugar produced from G3P (PGAL) during step 3 of photosynthesis
GRANA stack of thylakoids found in chloroplasts that contain chlorophyll for photosynthesis
LIGHT ENERGY absorbed by chlorophyll in steps 1 & 2 and transformed into stored energy as ATP & NADPH
NADPH high-energy compound produced in step 2 and used by step 3 to make G3P (and then glucose)
OXYGEN given off by plants during step 1 as waste; taken in by animals during respiration (breathing)
WATER broken apart by plants in step 1 for making high-energy electrons and giving off oxygen
PHOTOSYSTEM 1 second step/stage of photosynthesis that absorbs light energy in order to make NADPH for step 3
PHOTOSYSTEM 2 first step/stage of photosynthesis that absorbs photons to make ATP so that glucose can be made in step 3
RuBP used in step 3 to collect CO2 so that glucose can be made; recylced over and over again in this stage
STROMA gel-like fluid inside chloroplast surrounding thylakoids; water is stored here so that photosynthesis can occur
THYLAKOID structure within the chloroplast; membrane contains chlorophyll and other molecules to carry out 3 steps of photosynthesis
PHOTOSYNTHESIS process carried out by plants; consists of three steps or stages; used to store absorbed light energy in bonds of glucose
PHOTONS packets of light energy that behave as both particles and waves; are absorbed and transformed during photosynthesis

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.
