T 1.02 Light-dependent Reactions

Please sign up for the course before starting the lesson.

The first step in photosynthesis is the light-dependent reaction. In this step, chlorophyll molecules absorb photons and use this energy to release an energised electron. The electron is passed to a chain of molecules and enzymes that use it to create two energy-carrying molecules, ATP and NADPH. To replace the lost electrons, the chlorophyll splits […]
