Question Answer
photosynthesis A process in which plants convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into food energy (sugar)
cellular respiration The process by which the chemical energy of "food" molecules is released and changes into ATP
chloroplasts 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 The food for the plant (sugar)
mitochondria Rod-shaped organelles with a double membrane that converts energy stored in glucose into ATP for the cell
photosynthesis equation h2o+Co2+light——- o2+c6h12o6 (water+carbon dioxide+light——- oxygen+glucose {sugar})
respiration equation o2+c6h12o6——h2o+co2+ATP
carbon dioxide One of the raw materials needed for photosynthesis (co2)
diffusion The movement of molecules from an area in which they are highly concentrated to an area in which they are less concentrated
osmosis The diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane
active transport The movement of materials through the cell membrane using cellular energy
