On the last page you were introduced to the basics of the light-dependent reactions in photosynthesis. Let's take a little closer look at this process to begin with.
The main function of the light-dependent reactions are to capture and transfer energy. The light reactions can be further broken down into Photosystem II and Photosystem I.
Photosystem II -
Photosystem I -
Go to the WyzAnt Photosynthesis lesson, read two pages, Photosynthesis and Light and Dark Reactions.
In addition watch these two animations to help you understand this complicated process of photosynthesis.
