CH 8 Test Review
1. ATP consists of adenine, a 5-carbon sugar called ribose, and three
phosphate groups.
2. ATP can easily release and store energy by breaking and reforming
the bonds between its phosphate groups.
3. Organisms that obtain food by consuming other living things are known
as heterotrophs.
4. Organisms that make their own food are called autotrophs.
5. In the process of photosynthesis, plants convert the energy of sunlight
into chemical energy stored in the bonds of carbohydrates.
6. Plants gather the sun’s energy with light-absorbing molecules called
7. The plants’ principal pigment is chlorophyll.
8. Chloroplasts contain an abundance of saclike photosynthetic membranes
called thylakoid membranes.
9. The fluid portion of the chloroplast, outside of the thylakoids, is known as
the stroma.
10. An electron carrier is a compound that can accept a pair of high-energy
electrons and transfer them, along with most of their energy, to another
11. One of these carrier molecules is a compound known as NADP+
(nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate).
12. Photosynthesis uses the energy of sunlight to convert water and carbon
dioxide (reactants) into high-energy sugars and oxygen (products).
13. The light-dependent reactions use energy from sunlight to produce
the energy-rich compounds such as ATP and NADPH.
14. The light-independent reactions take place outside the thylakoids, in the
15. Thylakoids contain clusters of chlorophyll and proteins known as
16. An electron transport chain is a series of electron carrier proteins that
shuttle high-energy electrons during ATP-generating reactions.
17. The thylakoid membrane contains a protein called ATP synthase that
spans the membrane and allows H+ ions to pass through it.
18. The light-independent reactions produce sugars - They occur in the
stroma of thylakoids and are commonly called the Calvin cycle.
The Calvin Cycle
a. Six carbon dioxide molecules from the atmosphere enter the Calvin
cycle and combine with 5-carbon compounds already present.
b. They produce twelve 3-carbon compounds.
c. Two 3-carbon molecules are removed from the cycle. They are used by
the plant to build sugars, amino acids, lipids and other compounds.
d. The remaining ten 3-carbon molecules are converted back to
(6) 5-carbon compounds and begin a new cycle.
Photosynthesis: Complete the equation.
6CO2 + 6H20 → C6H12O6 + 6O2
