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.
6. RuBisCo catalyzes the conversion of CO2 to a ____-carbon-containing molecule? -> 1
7. CAM plants are unique because -> they only open their stomata at night.
8. What other cellular organelle is most like the chloroplast because of its evolutionary roots? -> The lysosome
9. Which of the following is NOT a characteristic of a C4 plant? -> They only open their stomata at night.
10. Photorespiration -> is the process by which light energy is converted to chemical energy.
