Chlorophyll a has absorption maxima of 430nm and 662nm. Which corresponds to violet and red. Chlorophyll b has absorption maxima of 453nm and 642nm. Which corresponds to blue and red. Hope that helps
Chlorophyll a and Chlorophyll b absorb the other colors and reflect the color green, the color that you see.
Chlorophyll a and b absorb light energy.
Chlorophyll a and b absorb BLUE-VIOLET and RED wavelengths of light best.
There are two main types of Chlorophyll. Chlorophyll a and b. Then there is carotenoids that absorb violet and blue-gree light. The Chlorophylls a &b absorb red, blue and violet.
photosynethesis uses chlorophyll A and chlorophyll B to absorb light to provide the energy for photosynthesis
Each absorb a different wavelength of light. Chlorophyll A is the reaction centre.Chlorohyll B has an aldehyde group in place of the CH 3.
When chlorophyll or accessory pigments absorb photons it causes the electrons from chlorophyll A to be picked up by an acceptor molecule and sent through the cytochrome system. Electrons from chlorophyll B and accessory pigments replace the electrons of chlorophyll A.
Chlorophyll a and b absorb light very well in the blue-violet and red regions of the visible spectrum. Green light is reflected, which is why plants are green.
They both absorb al of the wavelengths of sunlight except for green.
None, Chlorophyll a, b and c carotenes and xanthophylls are alll photosynthetic pigments that absorb light and are used in photosynthesis
to absorb energy in parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that chlorophyll a cannot
Its because their structures are a little bit different from each other, and they also absorb different light wavelenghts or colours.
chlorophyll is composed of many lights that we see in a rainbow. chlorophyll a is when it absorbs all light except for the color red. chlorophyll b is the same as chlorophyll a but instead of not absorbing the color red it refuses to absorb the color blue.
the chlorophyll A and chlorophyll B
There are 2 different types of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll "a" absorbs light in the violet and red regions of the visible spectrum while chlorophyll "b" absorbs light in the blue and red regions of the visible spectrum.
the function of clorophyll is to make photosynthesis possible and to absorb more light
These pigments are able to absorb more wavelengths of light (and thus more energy) than chlorophyllaalone can absorb. As part of light-harvesting complexes in photosystems, they broaden the range of light that can be used in the light reactions.
All plants contain chlorophyll a, b, c, or d which are pigments that absorb specific types of light. For example, chlorophyll a reflects blue green lights, while chlorophyll b reflects yellow green light.
There is chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b.
The molecular formula of chlorophyll a is C55H72MgN4O5; the molecular formula of chlorophyll b is C55H7oMgN4O6.
The structural difference between chlorophyll 'a' and chlorophyll 'b' is this that the functional group bonded to the porphyrin is methyl group (-CH3) in chlorophyll 'a' and carbonyl group (-CHO) in chlorophyll 'b'.
Carotenoids and chlorophyll b absorb some of the energy in the green wavelength.
It depend upon pigments.Chlorophyll a absorbs around 200nm,Chlorophyll b absorbs around 300nm.
