Question

The quantum yield of photosynthesis is measured in terms of



A

The number of oxygen molecules evolved.

loader
B

The number of oxygen molecules evolved per quantum of light absorbed. 

loader
C

The number of oxygen molecules evolved per water molecules broken.

Solution

The correct option is B

The number of oxygen molecules evolved per quantum of light absorbed. 


In a chemical photodegradation process, when a molecule dissociates after absorbing a quantum of light, the quantum yield is the number of destroyed molecules divided by the number of photons absorbed by the system.
