Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration By: Alisha Rahbarian

Photosynthesis Definition: Photosynthesis is the process when plants use the sun's energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars for energy, and oxygen which gets released from the plant.
In this picture, the plant is getting energy from the sunlight.
The plant is getting water from the roots as it shows in this picture.
Carbon dioxide is going into the plant. It is also one of the reactants of photosynthesis.
This picture shows how plants make their own food in photosynthesis.
What is Stoma? It is an opening in the leaf that lets gases in and out
What is Chloroplast? It is an organelle found in plant cells where photosynthesis occurs. What is Chlorophyll? Chlorophyll is what makes plants green.
What is glucose? It is the product of the chemical reaction that occurs during photosynthesis.

What is Cellular Respiration? It is the process that releases energy by breaking down glucose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen.

The glucose is going inside the Lung
The glucose and mitochondria react which creates water, carbon dioxide, and ATP energy after the glucose enters the lung.
Once the carbon dioxide is created, it goes through the bloodstream so it can be removed from the body since it is a bad gas for the body.
