Bio.F4.Pg133 Photosynthesis (addition?)

I think if you wonder where are the sources of electrons and their vampires come from… maybe these remix will help.

PART1 (Start with H2O)

Sunlight will provide us energy in this part, aka photolysis.

We begin with 24 mols of water


As on the text book we know there is something called PHOTOLYSIS, it can seperate water into it’s components. It happens in chlorophyll

24*H20 –> 24H+ & 24OH- 

Then we know that electrons of chlorophyll get excited easily, horny! It’s used to discharge hydrogen ions.

24H+ & 24e- (Chlorophylls’) –> 24H

Chlorophyll –> Chlorophyll24+ & 24e-   (since 24 electrons are loaned to discharge hydrogen) ***ATP FORMED!***

Now we owe chlorophyll 24 electrons, someone will pay for it, so to discharge hydroxyl ions, they will pay for it!

24OH- -> 24OH & 24e-

Chlorophyll24+ & 24e- -> Chlorophyll   (thanks hydroxyl ions!)

Now the story of chlorophyll ends! So in the first part (light reaction) we got the ATPs and hydrogens in our disposal. The rest, such as water and oxygens are released back to the environment due to the unstability of hydroxyl groups.

The combine & breakdown of hydroxyl groups will be as follow

24OH –> 12*H2O& 6*O2

PART2 (Start with H)

The adenosine triphosphate we got from the first part will used to supply energy in this part.

We begin with hydrogen atoms and the carbon dioxide that taken in via stoma. Since carbon dioxide contains carbon, that means we can render it into energy source, to fix that:

6CO2 + 24H –> 6(CH2O) + 6H2O

It’s cabohydrate monomer known as hexose, or we address it as glucose:

6(CH2O) –> C6 H12 O6


6 Water + 6 Carbon Dioxide —–LIGHT—-CHLOROPHYLL—>>>> 1 Glucose + 6 Oxygen(II)
