All living things obtain and use energy…
How do plants convert energy from the sun into food for energy?
Trace the path of energy from the sun to glucose.
Sun–> Energy is captured in leaves by chlorophyll inside the organelle chloroplasts. –> Energy is captured by electrons and carried in ATP and NADPH. –> The high-energy electrons are used to build molecules the cell need like glucose.
What do plants need in order to undergo photosynthesis?
Photosynthesis within chloroplasts is divided into two phases:
1) Light Reactions (occurs in the thylakoid disk)
i) Electrons excited by the sun are carried by ATP and NADPH to where the next phase occurs.ii) (a) H2O
