Term Definition
Photosynthesis A process by which plants convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into food energy (sugar), oxygen and water.
Cellular resperation The process by which the chemical energy of "food" molecules is released and changed into ATP.
Chloroplast An enlongated cell organelle containing chlorophyll where photosynthesis takes place
Chlorophyll A green molecule which uses light energy from sunlightnto change water and carbon dioxide gas into sugar and oxygen
Glucose plant food
Mitochondria Rod shaped organelles with a double membrane which converts the energy stored in glucose into ATP for the cell
Photosynthesis equation H2O+CO2+light=O2+C6H12O6
Respiration equation O2+C6H12O6=H2O+CO2 +ATP
Carbon dioxide What we breathe out
Diffusion movement of particles
Osmosis The diffusion of water across a selectivelly permable membrane
Active transport The movement of materials through a cell membrane using cellular energy. It requires the cell to use its own energy
