# photosynthesis 2. Water is the source of hydrogenduring the light dependent reaction of photosynthesis. Water is split into hydrogen and oxygen. The oxygen is released into the atmosphere and the hydrogen is transferred to a carrier molecule called NADP, to produce NADPH. The NADPH is then used in the light independent reaction to reduce carbon dioxide to carbohydrate. See my answer to this question on WikiAnswers: What connects the light dependent reaction to the light independent reaction?

Dioxygen, or O2, is considered the waste product of photosynthesis (light dependent reaction.)

the splitting of water in the light dependent reactions of photosynthesis.

During photosynthesis, the light dependent reactions take place in the thylakoids, which are part of the chloroplasts.

During the light dependent reactions, 2ATP and 1NADPH+ are moved to the light independent reaction ( Calvin Cycle and C4 pathway)

Yes, photolysis occurs in the light dependent reaction.

Oxygen is a byproduct of photosynthesis. It is released during the light dependent reactions and comes from the reaction of water with carbon dioxide.

There are actually only two sets of reactions that take place during photosynthesis. There is the light dependent reaction and the light independent reaction.

Yes , O2 molecule is produced during light dependent reactions of photosynthesis after being split from H2O by effect of energy..

During the light dependent reactions of photosynthesis, water is split, releasing oxygen gas.

During the light dependent reactions of photosynthesis, electrons undergo electron transport via an electron transport chain in the thylakoid membranes of the chloroplast.

oxidation of water, reduction of NADP+, formation of ATP

This is called the light phase oh photosynthesis as opposed to the dark phase. During the light phase, photons excite enzymes on the thylakoid. Also can be known as Light-Dependent Reactions

ATP, NADPH, and Oxygen are produced during light-dependent reactions.

The two reactions that occur during photosynthesis are a light reaction and a dark reaction.

Light-dependent reaction (can only take place during the day) and the Light-independent reaction (can take place during the day and at night).

During light dependent reactions chlorophyll and other light-aborbing molecules capture energy from sunlight.

Photosynthesis produes oxygen gas (O2) as a by-product of the light reactions. This gas is critical because it is needed for cellular respiration of all organisms.

The Calvin Cycle is one of the light dependent reactions in plants. The Calvin Cycle occurs during the photosynthesis process.

It is not a constant. However 6 CO2 moles will form one glucose mole.

Waste product of respiration is carbon dioxide, which plants use during photosynthesis.
