Problem: (a) How does the light independent reaction depend on the light-dependant reaction? (b) When and where does the light independent reaction and light-dependant reaction occur?

FREE Expert Solution

Light dependent reaction occurs first before the light independent reaction. Light dependent reaction produces the ATP and NADPH that the light independent reaction will use, without this energy the light independent reaction will not happen. This is the main reason why light independent reaction depends on the light dependent reaction.
