PHOTOSYNTHESIS: LIGHT REACTIONS AND CALVIN CYCLE
come from or are used in Photosynthesis and Cell Respiration
Photosynthesis is the first stage of energy flow through an ecosystem. You and all other animals on earth rely on the energy that plants store for life. But animals aren’t the only organisms that burn energy. Plants burn energy as they grow, too. In both plants and animals, the process of — which releases stored energy for use — occurs in the mitochondria inside each cell.
second stage of photosynthesis, the Calvin cycle
Watch this online video that discusses energy, photosynthesis and cellular respiration and complete the quiz at the end. For the 1.4a assignment pay close attention to the photosynthesis part. We will be learning about cellular respiration in 1.4d
Light-independent reactions Calvin cycle ..
The main function of cellular respiration is to break down food and release energy.
There are two types of cellular respiration: aerobic and anaerobic.
Referring back to the introduction, cellular respiration and photosynthesis go through different stages each involving different reactions.
Divided into two stages
: Light dependent reaction and Light Independent reaction/Calvin cycle
Chulalongkorn University • Photosynthesis and cellular respiration ..
Throughout the redox reactions in cellular respiration, other energy molecules such as Nicotinamide Adenosine Dinucleotide + hydrogen (NADH) and Flavin Adenosine Dinucleotide + 2 hydrogen (FADH₂) are formed as well.

These energy molecules are going to be used in the dark reaction (Calvin Cycle) to link 6 carbon dioxide molecules.
Light Independent reaction/Calvin cycle
– putting in carbon dioxide to produce energy in the form of ATP.
