The Calvin Cycle converts three carbon dioxide molecules into which of the following?

The process of capturing inorganic carbon from the atmosphere is known as…

If the ATP used by the Calvin Cycle is generated by photosystem I, the light reactions were…

1
True or False: The G3P (3-carbon sugar) generated by the Calvin Cycle will be used exclusively to produce glucose for the plant.

1
Which 5-carbon molecule is responsible for fixing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere for use in the Calvin Cycle?
7
1
How many carbon atoms are, in total, involved after the fixation of 3 carbon dioxide molecules?
8
1
How many G3P molecules are created after spending the ATP and NADPH molecules?
9
1
How many ‘extra’ G3P molecules are generated for the plant to use per 3 carbon dioxide molecules entering the Calvin Cycle? (Remember that each G3P molecule has 3 carbon atoms!)

What does the term “photosynthetic rate” mean?
11
1
Which factor does not affect the photosynthetic rate?
12
1
Why does the impact of light intensity and carbon dioxide concentration “flatline” after a certain point? (This means that additional light or CO2 does not really change the rate of photosynthesis)
13
1
What is meant by the Photosynthesis/Transpiration Compromise, which the plant must regulate via its stomata (pores on the underside of the leaf)?
14
1
Which type of plant spends most of the time with their stomata (leaf pores) closed?
