The individual flattened stacks of membrane material inside the chloroplasts are known as______.
The fluid-filled area of the chloroplast is the ____.
Light of the green wavelengths is commonly absorbed by which accessory pigment?
The function of the electron transport proteins in the thylakoid membranes is____.
Pumping of hydrogens into the thylakoid space for later generation of ATP by chemiosmosis
ATP is known as the energy currency of the cell because _____.
ATP is the most readily usable form of energy for cells
Both cyclic and noncyclic photophosphorylation produce ATP. We can infer that the purpose of ATP in photosynthesis is to _____.
Supply energy that can be used to form a carbohydrate.
The role of NADPH in oxygen-producing photosynthesis is to ______.
Supply hydrogen to the carbohydrate

The hydrogen in the carbohydrate produced by the calvin cycle comes from _____.
The carbon incorporated into the carbohydrate comes from ______.
C-4 photosynthesis is so named because____.
It produces a four carbon compound as the first stable product of photosynthesis.
