Question Answer
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 energy of "food" molecules is released and changed into ATP.
Chloroplast An elongated cell organelle containing chlorophyll where 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 Sugar
Mitochondria Rod-shaped organelles with a double membrane which converts the energy stored in glucose into ATP for the cell.
Photosynthesis Equation Water+Carbon Dioxide+Sun–>Oxygen+Glucose
Respiration equation Oxygen+Glucose–>Water+Carbon Dioxide+Energy
Carbon Dioxide What plants breath out and animals breath in
Diffusion The movement of molecules from an area in which they are highly concentrated to an area in which they are less concentrated
Osmosis Same as diffusion but with other molecules
Active Transport The movement of materials through a cell membrane using cellular energy. It requires the cell to use its own energy.
