Question:

Light dependent reactions _____.

a. capture the energy of sunlight with chlorophyll in PS I & PS II

b. make ATP & NADPH using electron transport chains

c. energize electrons in both PSI & PSII

d. include both cyclic and noncyclic pathways

e. all of the above

Proton Gradients:

A chemical gradient exists when there is an uneven amount of a particular molecule on either side of a membrane. Molecules typically want to diffuse evenly on either side, and this is taken advantage of in the case of protons. Proton buildup on one side of a membrane is "cashed in" by letting protons through the membrane, giving off the energy to form ATP.
