Compare And Contrast The Two Stages Of The Light Reaction Of Photosynthesis

Satisfactory Essays
The light reaction of photosynthesis starts with "The Light Dependent Reactions" and states that electrons being moved from the acceptor to other proteins in the cell membrane, which works the electrons into making NADPH and ATP. This energy is powered by the movement of photons (units of light) across the thylakoid membrane to make the ATP. This movement also helps create NADPH. Photosynthesis has two stages; Stage 1, the absorbing of energy from sunlight is helped by the photosystem. Stage 2, uses the energy to make ATP and NADPH. The two stages above only occurs during the light and as said before is called the Light Dependent Reaction. NADPH and ATP are both important because of their energy-rich chemical and then starts the Calvin Cycle
