Print FlashCard
Term Definition
Photosynthesis a process by which plants convert sunlight, water and carbon into sugar
Chloloplast an elongated cell organelle containing chlorophyll where photosynthesis takes palce
Chlorophyll a green moleclule which uses light energy from sunlight to change water and carbon dioxcide gas into sugar and oxygen
Cellular Resperation the process by which the chemical energy of "food" molecules is released and changed into ATP
Mitochondria rod-shaped organelles with a double membrane which converts the energy stored in glucose onto ATP for the membrane
Photosynthesis equation H20 + Co2 + light = o2 + c6h12o6
Respiration equation o2 + C6H12O6 = h2o + co2 + ATP
Carbon dioxide what animals breath out, what plants take in
Glucose c6 h12o6 (sugar)
diffusion movement of molecules from an area of high consentration to an area of low consentration
Osmosis the diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane
Active transport the movement of materials through a cell membrane using cellular energy. It requires the cell to use its own energy.
