Term Definition
Photosynthesis A process by which plants convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into food energy (sugar), oxygen and water.
Chloroplast An elongated cell organelle containing chlorophll where photosynthesis takes place.
Chlorophll A green molecule which uses light energy from the sunlight to change water and carbon dioxide gas into sugar oxygen.
Celllar Respiration The process by which the chemical energy of "food" molecules is released and changed into ATP.
Glucose Is the food for the plant. It gives the plant 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 A gas that the plant absorbs as its oxygen.
Diffusion When something rapidly spreads.
Osmosis When molecules pass threw the cell membrane.
Active Transport When molecules move across the cell membrane.
