Term Definition
Photosynthesis a process in which plants convert sunlight water and carbon dioxide into food energy and water
celluar respiration the process in which the chemical energy of food molecules is released and changed int ATP
chloroplasts an elongated cell organelle containing chlorophyll where the photosynthesis takes place
chlorophyll a green molecule which uses light energy from sunlight to change water and carbon dioxide gas into sugar and oxegyn
glucose a simple sugar that is an important energy source in living organisms and is a component of many carbohydrates
mitochondria rod shaped organelles with a double membrane which converts the energy stored in glucose into the ATP for the cell
photosynthesis equation H2O+CO2+LIGHT=O2+C6H12O6
respiration equation O2+C6H12O6=H2O+CO2+ATP
carbon dioxide animals breath out plants breath in
diffusion movement of molecules from high concentration to low concentration
osmosis diffusion of water across a permeable membrane
active transport movement through a cell membrane from low to high
