Photosynthesis is the conversion of light energy to chemical energy which is then
stored in the form of glucose or other organic compounds. Photosynthesis occurs in
plants, algae and certain prokaryotes. Photosynthesis is generally the opposite of
respiration where photosynthesis starts with CO2, light energy, and water to yield glucose,
water and oxygen. This is the general equation for photosynthesis: 6CO2 + light energy +
12H2O = C6H12O6 + 6O2 + 6H2O.
In plants photosynthesis occurs in the thylakoid membrane. There are two
reactions in the thylakoid membrane: the light dependent reactions, and the light
independent reactions. In the light dependent reactions, light excites an electron into a
higher energy state. This electron is then captured by an electron acceptor and the energy
released during it’s fall back down to ground state is harvested to create ATP. In the light
independent reactions, the energy made fro...
