And I DON'T GET IT. Help?

I'm taking Biology 20 (Grade 11) and have a huge assignment due on photosynthesis tomorrow.
Can any of you Pit monkeys explain what goes on in Photosystem II and I and the electron transport chain and with the H+ ions and whatnot? I've looked in my textbook, google, and freakin Youtube, and I still can't for the life of me write a detailed description of the process and understand it.

as far as I can remember, it has something to do with photons of light coming in, and the energy is used to break water down into H+ and OH- ions.

...sorry i cant help more, tis been two years

Photosynthesis: Grass type. Heals a variant amount of pokemon's HP, dependent on the weather.

Hey, you asked for it.

If google doesn't know then the pit sure doesn't.

Energy of Sun + Water + Carbon Dioxide =*Photosynthesis*=> Sugar + Dioxygen.

Can't help you more, we're into that. (Just begun)

Hate to break it to ya, but biology gets a hell of a lot more complex than knowing plants use the sun's energy to form food.....

But since you're quite the genius, explain to him what each individual photosystem does and how they're related.

I should bookmark this for when we start photosynthesis. We're learning about the life cycle of ferns and moss right now

Obviously he knows what photosynthesis is

But actually read the first post and you can see he's confused about the more complex version of photosynthesis

How can you not get it?

It's not too difficult - just think it over many times, and it will click together.
