    Why are accessory pigments important for photosynthesis?
    because they absorb light that the chlorophylls do not, and they are capable of extending the potential energy absorption for photosynthesis

    What is oxygenic photosynthesis?
    the process by which life forms, that possess a photosystem II complex which splits water molecules, creating oxygen as one of the by-products

    What are the different products of photosystem I and photosystem II?
    Photosystem ii comes first; its electrons are excited by light and they enter electron transport chains, which makes it possible to produce ATP

    Photo i hands its excited electrons to NADP+, which is then changed to NADPH;
    both ATP and NADPH are then used in the calvin cycle
