photosynthesis

Print FlashCard
photosynthesis a prosses by which plants convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into food energy oxygen and water
cellular respiration
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
glucose Glucose is the food for the plant. it gives energy to grow
motochondria 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 + glucose —- H2O + CO2 = APT
carbon dioxide a colorless, odorless gas produced by burning carbon and organic compounds and by respiration. It is naturally present in air and is absorbed by plants in photosynthesis
diffusion the action of spreading the light from a light source evenly
osmosis a process by which molecules of a solvent tend to pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one, thus equalizing the concentrations on each side of the membrane.
active transport the movement of ions or molecules across a cell membrane into a region of higher concentration, assisted by enzymes and requiring energy.
