Photosynthesis: RuBisCo is NOT a Cookie Company True or False

1. What causes protons to move into the stroma? -> The protons are pumped into the stroma by the electron transport chain.
2. When is O2 produced during photosynthesis? -> During the light reactions, when electrons are pulled from H2O
3. What type of pigments transfers electrons to the electron transport chain? -> RuBisCo
4. Why are ATP and NADPH such important molecules in the cell for energy? -> They are very strong reducing agents.
5. What happens to the O2 present in CO2 used in the dark reactions? -> It leaves as H2O.
