Van helmont s experiment
Van Helmont’s Experiment

Plants grew by talking material out of the soil.


Van Helmont’s Experiment

Concluded on 1643

Trees gain most of their mass from water.

He didn’t notice that the carbon in carbon dioxide is used to make sugars and other carbohydrates in photosynthesis.

Light is necessary for plants to produce oxygen.


The experiments performed by van Helmont, Priestley, and Ingenhousz led to work by other scientists who finally discovered that in the presence of light, plants transform carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates, and they also release oxygen.

Light the process of photosynthesis. Energy from the sun travels to Earth in the form of light.Sunlight in our eyesight is “white” but it is actually a mixture of different wavelength.


These wavelength are visible to our eyes and make up what is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.


Pigments
Pigments is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Plants gather the sun’s energy with light-absorbing molecules called pigments.

  • The plants’ principal pigment is chlorophyll.


Pigments1
Pigments is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • The two types of chlorophyll found in plants, chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b, absorb light very well in the blue-violet and red regions of the visible spectrum, but not in the green region, as shown in the graph.

  • Leaves reflect green light, which is why plants look green.


Pigments2
Pigments is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Plants also contain red and orange pigments such as carotene that absorb light in other regions of the spectrum.


Pigments3
Pigments is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Most of the time, the green color of the chlorophyll overwhelms the other pigments, but as temperatures drop and chlorophyll molecules break down, the red and orange pigments may be seen.


Chloroplasts
Chloroplasts is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Photosynthesis takes place inside organelles called chloroplasts.

  • Chloroplasts contain saclike photosynthetic membranes called thylakoids, which are interconnected and arranged in stacks known as grana.


Chloroplasts1
Chloroplasts is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Pigments are located in the thylakoid membranes.

  • The fluid portion outside of the thylakoids is known as the stroma.


Energy collection
Energy Collection is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Because light is a form of energy, any compound that absorbs light absorbs energy. Chlorophyll absorbs visible light especially well.

  • When chlorophyll absorbs light, a large fraction of the light energy is transferred to electrons. These high-energy electrons make photosynthesis work.


High energy electrons
High-Energy Electrons is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • What are electron carrier molecules?


High energy electrons1
High-Energy Electrons is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • What are electron carrier molecules?

  • An electron carrier is a compound that can accept a pair of high-energy electrons and transfer them, along with most of their energy, to another molecule.


High energy electrons2
High-Energy Electrons is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • The high-energy electrons produced by chlorophyll are highly reactive and require a special “carrier.”


High energy electrons3
High-Energy Electrons is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Think of a high-energy electron as being similar to a hot potato. If you wanted to move the potato from one place to another, you would use an oven mitt—a carrier—to transport it.

  • Plants use electron carriers to transport high-energy electrons from chlorophyll to other molecules.


High energy electrons4
High-Energy Electrons is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • NADP+(nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate) is a carrier molecule.

  • NADP+ accepts and holds two high-energy electrons, along with a hydrogen ion (H+). In this way, it is converted into NADPH.

  • The NADPH can then carry the high-energy electrons to chemical reactions elsewhere in the cell.

  • What are the reactants and products of photosynthesis?


An overview of photosynthesis1
An Overview of Photosynthesis is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • What are the reactants and products of photosynthesis?

  • Photosynthesis uses the energy of sunlight to convert water and carbon dioxide (reactants) into high-energy sugars and oxygen (products).


An overview of photosynthesis2
An Overview of Photosynthesis is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Photosynthesis uses the energy of sunlight to convert water and carbon dioxide into high-energy sugars and oxygen.

    In symbols:

  • 6 CO2 + 6 H2O  C6H12O6 + 6 O2

    In words:

  • Carbon dioxide + Water  Sugars + Oxygen


An overview of photosynthesis3
An Overview of Photosynthesis is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Plants use the sugars generated by photosynthesis to produce complex carbohydrates such as starches, and to provide energy for the synthesis of other compounds, including proteins and lipids.


Light dependent reactions
Light-Dependent Reactions is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Photosynthesis involves two sets of reactions.

  • The first set of reactions is known as the light-dependent reactions because they require the direct involvement of light and light-absorbing pigments.


Light dependent reactions1
Light-Dependent Reactions is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • The light-dependent reactions use energy from sunlight to produce ATP and NADPH.

  • These reactions take place within the thylakoid membranes of the chloroplast.


Light dependent reactions2
Light-Dependent Reactions is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Water is required as a source of electrons and hydrogen ions. Oxygen is released as a byproduct.


Light independent reactions
Light-Independent Reactions is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

  • Plants absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and complete the process of photosynthesis by producing sugars and other carbohydrates.


During is known as the visible spectrum. Our eyes see the different wavelengths of the visible spectrum as different colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.light-independent reactions, ATP and NADPH molecules produced in the light-dependent reactions are used to produce high-energy sugars from carbon dioxide.
