Term Definition
photosynthisis 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 energy of "food" molecules is released and changed into ATP.
chloroplast an elongated cell organelle containing chlorophyll were photosynthesis takes place.
chlorophyll a green molecule which uses light energy from sunlight to change water and carbon dioxide gas into sugar and oxygen.
glucose a simple sugar with the molecular formula C?H??O?.
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 let

carbon dioxide plants need it and animals produce it
diffusion movement from a region of high concentration to a region of low concentration.
osmosis the diffusion of water across a selective permeable membrane
active transport the movement from low concentration to high concentration wile having to use energy
