1 The photosynthetic process occurs in the:
Ribosome
Lysosome
Mitochondria
Chloroplast
Golgi Body

2 The light independant phase occurs in the _____________.
Cell Wall
Lamellae
Grana
Stroma
Chloroplast Membrane

3 What happens to the electron at the start of the light dependant phase?
It is hit by a photon of light, and immediately makes ATP.
It is hit by a photon of light and leaves the system.
It is hit by a photon of light, moves to an excited state.
It is hit by a photon of light, and gives off energy.
It is hit by a photon of light and moves to the light independant phase.

4 What is the name of the substance that accepts the excited electron?
Heamoglobin
Phaeophytin
Chloroform
Enzyme
Ferredoxin

5 What happend to the electron as it makes its way through the enzyme carrier system?
Gives up its energy and breaks ATP into ADP and Pi.
Gives up its extra energy and makes ATP from ADP and Pi.
Gives up its extra energy and sends out a photon of light.
Takes in energy from the ADP and gives up a Pi.
Leaves the cyclic process altogether.

6 How many enzymes are present in the carrier system?
4
2
1
3
5

7 How many ATP molecules are formed during the cyclic process?
4
3
2
5
1

8 Where do these ATP molecules go after they are formed?
Out of the leaf.
Into the dark phase.
Stick to the electron and give it energy.
Into the respiration cycle.
To form water.

9 Where does the ferredoxin carry the electron to in the light independant phase?
NADP
PGA
ADP
An enzyme
PGAL

10 In the Calvin Cycle what does the 5 carbon RDP reat with to become a 6 carbon compound?
Light energy
ATP
C6H12O6
H2O
CO2
