Question Answer
Photosynthesis A process by which plantsconvert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxideinto food energy (sugar), oxygen and water.
Cellular respiration The process by whichthe chemical energy of "food" molecules isreleased and changed into ATP.
Chloroplast An elongated cell organellecontaining chlorophyll where photosynthesistakes place.
Chlorophyll A green molecule which useslight energy from sunlight to change water andcarbon dioxide gas into sugar and oxygen
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 adouble membrane which converts the energystored in glucose into ATP for the cell.
Photosynthesis equation
Respiration equation
Carbon dioxide a colorless, odorless gas produced by burning carbon and organic compounds and by respiration. It is naturally present in air (about 0.03 percent) and is absorbed by plants in photosynthesis.
Diffusion The movement of molecules from anarea in which they are highlyconcentrated to an area in whichthey are less concentrated.
Osmosis The diffusion of water across aselectively permeable membrane.
Active transport he movement of ions or molecules across a cell membrane into a region of higher concentration, assisted by enzymes and requiring energy.
