Term Definition
Difussion happens in living systems, for example, it explains the movement of carbon dioxide in leaves. Osmosis is the movement of water from a high water concentration to a low water concentration through a partially permeable membrane. Plants absorb water from t
Photosyntheisis For plants to perform photosynthesis they require light energy from the sun, water and carbon dioxide. Water is absorbed from the soil into the cells of roots. … Carbon dioxide is absorbed from the atmosphere through pores in the leaves called stomata.
cellular respiration are organelles found in plant cells and eukaryotic algae that conduct photosynthesis. Chloroplasts absorb sunlight and use it in conjunction with water and carbon dioxide gas to produce food for the plant.
chloraplast The organelles are only found in plant cells and some protists such as algae. … Chloroplasts work to convert light energy of the Sun into sugars that can be used by cells. The entire process is called photosynthesis and it all depends on the little gree
chlorophyll Chlorophyll is vital for photosynthesis, which allows plants to absorb energy from light. Chlorophyll molecules are specifically arranged in and around photosystems that are embedded in the thylakoid membranes of chloroplasts. In these complexes, chloroph
Glucose Energy is required for the normal functioning of the organs in the body. Many tissues can also use fat or protein as an energy source but others, such as the brain and red blood cells, can only use glucose. Glucose is stored in the body as glycogen. The l
Mitochandria Function. The most prominent roles of mitochondria are to produce the energy currency of the cell, ATP (i.e., phosphorylation of ADP), through respiration, and to regulate cellular metabolism. The central set of reactions involved in ATP production are co
photosynthesis equation A chemical equation is written below which summarizes the reactants and products of the photosynthesis pathway. The equation shows that carbon dioxide and water are used with light energy to produce glucose sugar and oxygen gas.
Respiration equation When we examine the equation for cellular respiration, we see that the reactants are glucose and oxygen (for aerobic respiration), and the products are carbon dioxide, water, and ATP. Note the number of oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water molecules involved
Carbon dioxide Carbon dioxide is the waste product of the respiritory system, and of several other chemical reactions in the body, such as the creation of ATP. Pure carbon cannot be transported in the body, so CO2 is one form it takes that is water soluble. Levels of CO
Osmosis Passive transport: Diffusion – the movement of a substance from an area of high concentration to an area of lower concentration (a concentration gradient). Facilitated diffusion – diffusion through carrier proteins within cell membranes. Osmosis – diffusi
Active transport Active transport is usually associated with accumulating high concentrations of molecules that the cell needs, such as ions, glucose and amino acids. If the process uses chemical energy, such as from adenosine triphosphate (ATP), it is termed primary acti
