Introduction

On this website you will know the steps of photosynthesis and how it works.

photosynthesis

photosynthesis is the process of making food in plants in which light energy, water and carbon dioxide are converted into sugar and oxygen occurs in three different stages.

step 1

The first step of photosynthesis goes threw the light dependent. Chlorophyll and carotenoids absorb light. Water is split into oxygen and hydrogen. Energy from the sun breaks water in oxygen and hydrogen electrons. Takes place in the thylakoids.

step 2

second step it goes threw is the electron transport chain. Moves hydrogen across the thylakoids to provide energy to produce ATP and NADPH.

step 3

It goes threw the calvin cycle. Using electrons carbon enters as carbon dioxide and leaves as sugar

Chloroplasts

primary pigments that absorbs other wave length to gain more light energy during photosynthesis gives us our fall colors
