How does the light dependent reaction affect the calvin cycle?

2 Answers

Helps by providing ATP and NADPH.


The light dependent reaction of photosynthesis provides two important requirements ATP and NADPH to the Calvin Cycle.
ATP-It is a energy rich compound. The light energy is stored in it. It provides the energy for the formation of energy rich chemical bonds in glucose. Finally, it changed into ADP.
NADPH-It helps the reduction of carbondixide into glucose. Finally, it oxidised into NADP.

They produce the ATP and NADPH necessary for the Calvin cycle.


Those molecules provide the energy necessary for the light-independent reactions to take place.
