Standards 7 1.d. students know that mitochondria liberate energy from the work that cells do and that chloroplast capture sunlight energy for photosynthesis. 1.f. students know usable energy is captured from sunlight by chloroplast and is stored through the synthesis of sugar from carbon dioxide.
What is photosynthesis? Is the process by which plants and some other organisms use light energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and high energy carbon hydrates such as sugars and scratches
Mitochondria Cell organelle that converts the chemical energy stored in food into compounds that are more convenient for the cell to use they have two organelles the names are - outer membrane - inner membraneThe mitochondria is an organel found in large numbersof most cells
A plant cell
Where does photosynthesis takesplaces? Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplast and in the chlorophyII ChlorophyII is what gives the leafs the color they are Also photosynthesis has 2 parts to it: -- light dependent reaction -- light independent reactions
Light dependent reactionChloroplast are organelle that convert light to energy.The light-dependent reactions take place in the inside achloroplast.
Light independent reaction The light-independent reactions of photosynthesis are chemical reactions that convert carbon dioxide and other compounds into glucose. The energy released from ATP drives this metabolic pathway. It is described to be light-independent as it proceeds regardless of the amount of light available. The term is used in contrast to light-dependent reaction of photosynthesis.
What is photosynthesis important toplants, humans, and animals? First of all plants are important to the life because that’ssome where animals and humans get oxygen from.Photosynthesis is the one that give plants with food andenergy. Animals are the ones that eat the plant. Forhumans we breathe in oxygen and we exhale carbondioxide.
The formula of photosynthesis….The formula is :6CO +6H O 2 2C H O +60 6 12 6 2
