Photosynthesis Tutorial and Problem Set I

 

The objectives of this problem set are to test your understanding of how light energy is converted into different forms of chemical energy during photosynthesis, to review the equations for the light reactions of photosynthesis, to study the pathway for electron transport during cyclic and non-cyclic photophosphorylation, and to explore the mechanism for coupling electron transport to ATP synthesis.

Instructions: The following problems have multiple choice answers. Correct answers are reinforced with a brief explanation. Incorrect answers are linked to tutorials to help solve the problem.

1. Chloroplast compartments

2. Energy source for ATP formation

3. Overall redox reaction

4. Result of electron transport

5. Overall energy source

6. Events during light reaction

7. Cyclic photophosphorylation

8. Equation for light reaction

9. Fate of excited pigment molecules

10. Overall result of photosynthesis

11. Photosystem II features

Terrariums and Vivariums Students' Manual

The contents of this file were developed as a continuum and this unit may take from five to ten weeks to complete depending upon the goals of the teacher and interests of the students. While some learning experiences may be used as stand-alone lessons, others build upon prior learning experiences. All materials for this unit must be obtained locally. This file should be used as a supplement to the Teachers' Manual.
