Expert Answer

Step 1

Photosynthesis:

It can be defined as the process with which the green plants and some other organisms convert the light energy into chemical energy. During this process, light energy is absorbed and is used to convert carbon dioxide, water, and minerals into energy-rich organic compounds and oxygen.

Step 2

Photosynthesis occurs in two stages:

Light reactions:

In first stage of photosynthesis, light reactions capture the light energy use it to produce the energy-storage molecules such as ATP and NADPH. In plants, light-dependent reactions take place in the thylakoid membranes of the chloroplasts.

The inputs required during the light reactions are light and ...
