Photosynthesis and Respiration - Jacob By Jacob Stadford


Photosynthesis is the process where green plants take in water, carbon dioxide, and the sun's energy to make food for the plants. What happens is the sun's energy rearages the molecules in the water and carbon dioxide to create glucose, a sugar that is food for the plant. Plants that are green are the only ones that can do the process of photosynthesis because they have a green pigment called Chlorophyll that generates oxygen as a byproduct. In the process the stoma in the plants leaves release gases, such as oxygen and carbon dioxide, back into the air.

Respiration is the process where a living thing takes in oxygen from the air outside and transports it into the tissues of the cells and releases carbon dioxide in the opposite direction.

During the day O2 comes out of plants and CO2 comes in
During the night O2 comes in and CO2 comes out
