Term Definition
Photosynthesis A process by which plants convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into food energy (sugar), oxygen and water.
Cellular respiration The process by which the chemical energy of "food" molecules is 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 sunlight to change water and carbon dioxide gas into sugar and oxygen.
Glucose The food plants make for energy.
Mitochondria The process by which the chemical energy of "food" molecules is released and changed into ATP.
Photosynthesis equation Water+ Carbon + sun > Oxygen + glucose Dioxide (sugar)
Respiration equation Oxygen + glucose > water + carbon + energy (sugar) dioxide
Carbon dioxide The gas humans output and what plants input.
Diffusion The movement of molecules from a high concentrated to a low concentrated area.
Osmosis The diffusion of water across a membrane.
Active transport The movement of a cell from a high concentrated to a low concentrated area.
