The light-dependent/dark (light-independent) reactions are linked, where ADP+ and NADP+, along with light energy, are converted to ATP and NADPH. We say that NADP+ is reduced to NADPH in this reaction (reduction is seen in many biological reactions where a hydrogen atom (H) is added to a molecule). This is the end-product of the light recation, as well as having oxygen (O2) released. NADPH and ATP are used in the dark reaction.
