Photosynthesis and Cellular respiration

photosynthesis and cellular repiration

Photosynthesis: Chloroplasts are organelles in plant cells. Chloroplasts are what makes leaves green, and they are also what takes the carbon dioxide, the water, and the light, and turns them into sugar and oxygen. The sugar is then used by the plants for food, and the oxygen is breathed out into the atmosphere. This process as a whole is "photosynthesis."

Cellular RespirationCellular respiration is the cellular process that turn oxygen and glucose taken into the cell into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and then release the waste products CO2 and H2O. Respiration is one of the key ways a cell releases chemical energy to fuel cellular activity. Cellular respiration occurs in the mitochondria organelle.
