Term Definition
Photosynthesis A process by which plants convert sunlight, water, and carbon into food energy (sugar), oxygen, and water.
Cellular Respiration The process by which the chemical energy of "food" molecules are released and changed into ATP.
Chloroplast An elongated cell organelle containing chlorophyll where photosynthesis takes place.
Chlorophyll A green molecule which uses light energy from the sunlight to change water and carbon dioxide gas into sugar and oxygen.
Glucose A material that is sugar (C6H12O6)
Mitochondria Change the O2 and sugar into CO2, H2O, and ATP
Photosynthesis equation H2O + CO2 + Light = O2 + C6H12O6
Respiration equation O2 +Glucose = H2O + CO2 + ATP
Carbon dioxide CO2 is what plants breath in.
Diffusion Is the movement of particles going from a high concentration to a low concentration.
Osmosis The process of molecules passing through the membrane.
Active transport The movement of particles moving into a higher concentration.
