Example text

It appears that our sun has at least another 5 billion years of hydrogen fuel remaining and the universe should stave off entropic doom for perhaps another 100 billion years. 34 Photosynthesis and Respiration Look around. Can you see examples of oxidation in your everyday environment? ) Both photosynthesis and respiration are examples of oxidation-reduction reactions. In photosynthesis, water is oxidized to molecular oxygen and the electrons are used to reduce carbon dioxide to sugar. Respiration is just the opposite—sugar or other organic molecules are oxidized and the electrons are used to reduce oxygen and form water.

So is cleaning your room or mowing the lawn. You know intuitively that any activity that requires you to expend energy is a form of work. A physicist defines work more generally as displacement of an object against some force—rolling that boulder uphill against the force of gravity, for example, or moving an electron against the force that attracts it to an atomic nucleus. The biologist’s definition of work is even broader, encompassing activities such as the synthesis of organic molecules, moving solutes across cellular membranes, osmosis, muscle contraction, and the dynamics of ecosystems.

Even in bright sunlight, it is unlikely that any individual chlorophyll molecule would be struck by a photon more than a few times every second. Thus, a reaction center relying on a single or even a few chlorophyll molecules to provide it with light energy would probably sit idle most of the time. The advantage offered by a photosystem is that while the reaction center is busy processing one photon, other photons have been intercepted by the antenna molecules and are being funneled toward the reaction center.
