Where is C6H12O6 used?

Cellular respiration allows organisms to use (release) energy stored in the chemical bonds of glucose (C6H12O6). The energy in glucose is used to produce ATP. Cells use ATP to supply their energy needs. Cellular respiration is therefore a process in which the energy in glucose is transferred to ATP.

Can you explain why 12 molecules of water as substrate are used in the equation given above?

12molecules of h2o used as substrate because in 12h2o there are 24 atoms of hydrogen and it has to split to form12 atoms of hydrogen in sugar and 12 atoms in water.

Where does light reaction take place?

The light reaction takes place in the thylakoid discs. There, water (H20) is oxidized, and oxygen (O2) is released. The electrons freed up from water are transfered to ATP and NADPH. The dark reaction occurs outside of the thylakoids.

Why is Nadph is important in photosynthesis?

NADPH stands for nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate hydrogen. NADPH is a product of the first stage of photosynthesis and is used to help fuel the reactions that take place in the second stage of photosynthesis. Plant cells need light energy, water and carbon dioxide to carry out the steps of photosynthesis.
