The light dependent reaction
takes place in the grana of the chloroplasts.
The useful products of the light dependent reaction are
reduced NADP and ATP.
Light provides the energy to split water and transfer electrons.
Light energy is captured by chlorophyll.
Leaves are adapted to carry out the reaction because they
have many chloroplasts, a large surface area and chloroplasts
with stacked grana.
The light dependent reaction produces oxygen as a waste
The light dependent reaction takes place on membranes because
they position electron transfer proteins and chlorophyll properly.
