Photosynthesis (Light Reactions)

The NDSU Virtual Cell Animation Project presents ‘Photosynthesis – The Light Reactions’. For more information please see Photosynthesis is the means by which plants make use of chlorophyll and light to produce energy. This section covers the basic stages of the light reactions in the photosynthetic electron transport chain.

    Like this if you have a test on photosynthesis tomorrow and you are totally screwed.

    If they didn’t have such long random names, It would be a lot easier to understand.

    what they taught in middle school: PLANT USE SUN TO MAKE SUGAR
    what we are expected to know in high school: 2e- are charged and through diffusion nadp+ and nadph are from 2e- and make C6H12O6 to have c6h12o6 and adenine triphosphate and nadp+

    Light reactions PS2 and PS1 take place in the membranes of the tylakoids and light-independent reactions (Calvin) take place in the stroma.

    Maybe if you woulda have look for a video about the dark reactions, the calvin cycle you coulda find it.But, this is a video from the first part of the photosyinthesis 🙂

    Also, don’t forget that he doesn’t mean teachers are compete fails, he just means that learning from the internet is much faster and more efficient. He probably could’ve learned to read and write from the internet much faster than he could have learnt it in school.

    I have a quiz tomorrow and this video only explained the process at which photosynthsis takes place. What about light and dark reactions?? What about the Complete Calvin cycle, cyclic and non cyclic phosphorylation?? I swear it’s hard to find a good video now a days……..

    No need to get smart. I think you knew what I meant. And who said I was taught to read and write by teachers? Maybe my parents taught me since I was home-schooled. Dont go around assuming things.

    Thank you for assuring me that I am going to fail my Biology exam which is in a few hours.

    I understand this while my teacher is discussing this, but you explained it very well! Thanks! I am not confused now, 🙂

    so bad… then how come you can read and write, if teachers are useless????

    is it just me or does photosystem 1 (3:48) look like stonehenge? hmmm.
