Quantum photosynthesis/Cell Respiration.

  1. Nov 25, 2006 #1
    I have a quick question about my learnings in photosynthesis, cellular respiration.

    1. When light photons "strike" the lipid bylayer of mitochondria, don't they cause the membrance to have constant changes of energy? Does this have any affect on its function?

    2. How does an electron "loose" its energy in the electron transport system.

    3. This is Cell respiration, but when an ATP looses its end phosphate, how does that energy affect other molecules to bond, work, etc.

    Lay questions for a lay person...
