Of course, you will need to know the steps and names of the intermediate parts of the cycle, but as I said before, that will be much easier once you feel very comfortable with the general process.
The overall, final photosynthesis reaction looks like this: Now that we have created glucose, in the next Biology Tutor post we will go through the festive process of breaking it down.
Because these series of reactions start and end with the same molecule, they are referred to as a cycle, specifically the Calvin cycle.
The enzyme rubisco (Ru BP carboxylase) is a very important component of this cycle.
If light is far away from the leaves of a plant, for example, then it takes more time for the light to be absorbed and used in photosynthesis.
When it takes more time for the light to reach the leaves, the rate of photosynthesis decreases.
The rate of photosynthesis may vary with changes that occur in environmental temperature, wavelength of light, and light intensity.
Using a photosynthetic organism of your choice, choose only ONE of the three variables (temperature, wavelength of light, or light intensity) and for this variable.
The rate is the number of bubbles released per minute.
Organisms that use the process of photosynthesis to create sugar to use for energy have a greater rate of photosynthesis when the intensity of the light source is the greatest.
