  • Step one
    CO2 and H2O enter the leaf
  • Step two
    Light hits the pigment in the membrane of the thylakoid, splitting the H2O and O2
  • Step three
    The electrons move down to enzymes
  • Step four
    Sunlight hits the second pigment molecule allowing the enzymes to convert ADP to ATP and NADP+ gets converted to NADPH
  • Step five
    The ATP and NADPH is used by the calvin cycle as a power source for converting carbon dioxide from the atmosphere into simple sugar glucose
  • Step six
    The calvin cycle converts 3CO2 molecules from the atmosphere to glucose.
