Reduction of CO2 into carbohydrates during photosynthesis can take place in the absence of light.Why?
Asked by SANDRA SAJI | 8th May, 2016, 07:36: PM
- During light reaction or photochemical reaction of photosynthesis, the light energy obtained from sunlight is converted into chemical energy.
- This chemical energy is trapped in ATP and NADPH molecules which act as assimilatory power.
- This chemical energy is finally stored in carbohydrate molecules when ATP and NADPH are utilised in the dark reaction of biochemical phase of photosynthesis, thereby reducing CO2 to carbohydrates.

- Which organism is capable of self nourishment
- How are the food stuffs and their nutrient contents useful for body
- In photosynthesis how atp and nadph is formed and how light energy is capture from sunlight
- What is the function of ADP and ATP ?

- Hello Mam, Please clear my doubt, We place a water plant - a hydrilla in a beaker of water and place a funnel over it which is closed by an test tube.This is now placed below a source of light. Now from the beaker the plant releases oxygen gas. With the same apparatus when we add afew drops of baking soda to the water,there is a sudden increase in number of gas bubbles coming out. Why is it so? Thank You
- Define the term cellulose.
- In activity 6.1 class 10 ncert ,why they have removed or utilised starch and then created by photosynthesis again.Why did not they directly took leaf and did the experiment.
- How do parasitic organism derive thier nutrition?
- Photosynthesis in an aquatic plant was measured by counting the number of O2 bubbles coming out of the cut end of the plant. What will happen to O2 production if you use a pipe blow air from your mouth into water in the beaker?
