Chlorophyll is a pigment found in the chloroplasts of plants that absorbs the wavelengths of light required to convert water and carbon dioxide into chemical energy during photosynthesis. Molecules of chlorophyll are arr... More »

The role of nicotinamide adenine, or NADP, is to act as an electron carrier during the light dependent stages of photosynthesis. During the interaction, the electrons change NADP from its oxidized state - NADP+ - to its ... More »

Leaves typically have a large surface area that contains chloroplasts to absorb sunlight for the process of photosynthesis. The chloroplasts contain a substance called chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the substance that makes... More »

For photosynthesis to occur, plants need sunlight, water, carbon dioxide and chlorophyll. Through the process of photosynthesis plants convert light energy into chemical energy. They use this energy to make food which th... More »

Chlorophyll is the pigment used by plants to absorb energy in a process known as photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is a green pigment that is responsible for a plant's colors. When chlorophyll absorbs sunlight as energy, it be... More »

During photosynthesis, plants make glucose and oxygen from carbon dioxide and water. To do this, they need energy in the form of light from the sun. While plants use glucose as energy, oxygen enters the atmosphere for us... More »

Respiration, in which energy is released from carbohydrates for metabolic needs, takes place in plants through a process which can be expressed in a word equation as: glucose + oxygen = energy + carbon dioxide + water. T... More »
