Description
Bio Review Sheet ­ Photosynthesis Photosynthesis enables plants to produce structural and metabolic substances that aid in  their survival.  For example, much of the glucose produced by plants is converted to  cellulose; glucose may also be converted to other sugars and storage forms of  carbohydrates (i.e. starch).   6CO  + 6H O + energy  ▯C H O  + 6O   2 2 6 12 6 2 Carbon dioxide and water, with the additional of energy from the sun, are used to produce  glucose and oxygen.   As the term photosynthesis suggests, the process involves 2 sets of reactions: photo,  meaning light, refers to the reactions that capture light energy and synthesis, which refers  to the reactions that produce a carbohydrate.  These two sets of reactions that make up  photosynthesis are called light dependent and light independent reactions.   • In light­dependent reactions, light energy is trapped and used to generate two  high­energy compounds: ATP and NADPH. • In light­independent rea
