Term Definition
Photosynthesis The process in which plants convert sunlight and carbon into suger
Cellular respiration The process by which the chemical energy of "food" molecules is released and changed into ATP.
Chlorophyll A green molecule which uses light energy from the sun to change water and carbon dioxide gas into suger and oxygen
Glucose Glucose is the food for the plant . It gives the plant the energy to grow.
MItochondria 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 +C6H12O6 –> H2O + CO2 + ATP
Carbon dioxide What animals breath out and plants take in
Diffusion The movement of cells for a highly concentrated area to a less concentrated area
Osmosis The movement of cells from a low concentrated area to a high concentrated area
Active transport The movement of molecules across a cell membrane into a region of higher concentration, requires energy.
