Photosynthesis & Respiration -Diana Yurchuk

Photosynthesis: The process by which plants and other organisms use sunlight to make food from carbon dioxide and water.

This is the chemical equation for photosynthesis.

This is the process for photosynthesis.

This is what happens inside leaves during the process of photosynthesis.

Leaves release oxygen.

Cellular respiration: The chemical process that powers most of the energy in a cell. Cellular respiration also helps supply molecules that need to make the metabolic reactions of an organism run.

-Metabolism: In order for a living organism to maintain its life, it undergoes a chemical process called metabolism.

This is the equation for cellular respiration.

This is the process of cellular resperation.

Light energy: A type of light that people can see as well as invisible waves.

Water: A transparent and tasteless liquid that is the basis of the fluids of living organisms and also makes up lakes, rivers, oceans, etc.

Carbon dioxide: A odorless and colorless gas that is produced by resperation and burning carbon. This gas is also absorbed by plants through the preocess of photosynthesis.

Stoma: A tiny pore that is used for gas exchange.

Chloroplast: In which photosynthesis takes place (inside a plastid that has chlorophyll in it).

Chlorophyll: A green pigment in the leaf that is responsible for absorbing light, in order to provide energy for photosynthesis.

Glucose: A type of sugar that is an important energy source in living things.

CO2 is the chemical formula for carbon dioxide.

H2O is the chemical formula for water.

C6H12O6 is the chemical formula for glucose.

O2 is the chemical formula for oxygen.

ATP is stored energy. ATP also stands for adenosine triphosphate which is the energy currency of life.
