Question Answer
Photosynthesis Photosynthesis is the process used by plants, algae and certain bacteria to harness energy from sunlight into chemical energy.
Cellular Resperation carbon dioxide + electron donor + light energy > carbohydrate + oxidized electron donor + water.
Chloroplast (in green plant cells) a plastid that contains chlorophyll and in which photosynthesis takes place.
Chlorophyll a green pigment, present in all green plants and in cyanobacteria, responsible for the absorption of light to provide energy for photosynthesis.
Glucose It's a type of sugar you get from foods you eat, and your body uses it for energy.
mitochondria an organelle found in large numbers in most cells, in which the biochemical processes of respiration and energy production occur.
Photosynthesis equation Photosynthesis makes the glucose that is used in cellular respiration to make ATP. The glucose is then turned back into carbon dioxide, which is used in photosynthesis.
Respiration equation Image result for what is respiration equationWhen we examine the equation for cellular respiration, we see that the reactants are glucose and oxygen (for aerobic respiration), and the products are carbon dioxide, water, and ATP.
Carbon dioxide a colorless, odorless gas produced by burning carbon and organic compounds and by respiration.
Diffusion the spreading of something more widely.
Osmosis a process by which molecules of a solvent tend to pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one, thus equalizing the concentrations on each side of the membrane.
Active transport the movement of ions or molecules across a cell membrane into a region of higher concentration, assisted by enzymes and requiring energy.
