  • List the locations of the light reactions & the Calvincycle within the chloroplast and identify location on adiagram
  • Use the absorption spectrum of a pigment to identifywavelengths absorbed and reflected by that pigment
  • Describe the events of the light reactions including:
  • Excitation of electrons vs donation of electrons

  • ATP production using energy from an electron transportchain
  • List the products of the light reactions
