Ok this might be sad but I figure why not help with revision?

Biology first because

I think photosynthesis will be the topic...

I shall put the first stage and then in comments reply with the next stage ( I know it's very sad...)

Light Dependent Reactions

Energy from light raises an electron to a higher energy level - it becomes an excited electron! The chorophyll is photoactivated.

So are we replying yeah? Or only you? I hope it us coz photosynthesis is one of my favourite bits.

The electrons are passed to the electron carrier chain, which uses the energy to pump H+ ions into the lumen of the thylakoid membrane. This creates an electrochemical gradient which is harnessed by ATP synthase to produce ATP as the H+ ions flow back through the membrane - photophosphorylation by chemiosmosis.

Sorry...that was quite a long "stage". It's just so hard to know where one stage ends and where one begins in all these processes!

Yay for Biology! (but not the pooey heart...it's pooey)

Everyone is replying yes! I thought it could be like a trivia chain...only with biology!

I will leave the next step to someone else - I wouldn't want to take too many goes!
