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 of ? food? molecules is released and changed into ATP
chlorplast a elongated cell organelle containing chlorophyll where photosynthesis takes place
chlorophyll a green molecule which use light energy from sunlight to change water and carbon dioxide gas into sugar and oxygen
glucose the food for the plant
mitochondria rod shaped organells with a double membrane which which coverts the energy stored in glucose into ATP for the cell
photosynthesis equation water + carbon + sunlight = oxygen + gloucose ( sugr)
respiration equation oxygen + glucose = water + carbon dioxide +energy
carbon dioxide comes form animals
diffusion the movement of molecules from an area in which they are highly conentrated to an area in which they are less concentrated
osmosis the diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane
active transport the movement of moterial through a cell membrane using cellular energy
