photosynthesis for kids in 5th grade
Cyclic Electron Flow It is a cycle - the product is shunted off the cycle while the starting materials are regenerated to be used again
Occurs in the stroma, where carbon enters in the form of inorganic CO2 and leaves in the form of organic sugar
this is called carbon fixation
The cycle consumes ATP as an energy source and uses NADPH as reducing power to add high-energy electrons to CO2 to make sugar.
The product is a 3 carbon sugar called glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate (G3P)
Each turn of the Calvin Cycle fixes 1 carbon atom - the cycle must go around three times to make one G3P or 6 times to make glucose Absorption and Action Spectrums
Absorption spectrum - measures the absorption of different pigments as a function of wavelength
Provides clues to relative effectiveness of pigments driving photosynthesis
Action spectrum - a combination of all the absorbed wavelengths
Shows the overall effectiveness of different wavelengths of light in driving the process of photosynthesis.

January. 6, 1878 ~ American poet, historian, novelist & folklorist. Carl Sandburg was born in Galesburg, Illinois. He was virtually unknown to the literary world when, in 1914, a group of his poems appeared in the nationally circulated Poetry magazine. Two years later his book Chicago Poems was published, and the thirty-eight-year-old author found himself on the brink of a career that would bring him international acclaim.
