This is a simulation of the Photosynthesis process.
You may pause and discuss the process step by step.
You may use it to:
- Identify the steps in the process
- Take notes of charge transfers and molecular synthesis
- Prepare a presentation for the class
Learning object available in:
Terms you need to know:
|Click on the photon to start the photosynthesis.|
|Click on the water molecule to donate electrons to the P680.|
|Click on another 680 nm photon. It takes 2 photons (2 e-) to reduce PQ to PQH2.|
|Click on the manganese complex to donate an electron to the P680 again.|
|Click on the 700 nm photon to continue the process.|
|Click on the ferrodoxin to continue.|
|Click on another 700 nm photon. It takes 2 photons (2 e-) to reduce NADP+ to NADPH.|
|Click on the Plastocyanin to donate an electron to the P700 again.|
|Click on the ferrodoxin again to continue the reduction to NADPH.|
|Click on the ATP synthase.|
(2) Suggested age group. The learning object may be used by the Teachers with students of any age.
