PHYSICS
Asked by Tim

Can we consider oxygen as a product of light dependent reactions?

I assume you mean in Photosynthesis? Oxygen is produced in the light dependent reaction, but it is not a useful product. It is made when water is split, releasing protons, which are useful in the production of the key products NADPH and ATP, which are then used in the light independent reactions (the Calvin cycle).
