How Photosynthesis and Respiration is alike!

Cellular respiration produces oxygen, while photosynthesis uses oxygen. Photosynthesis releases energy, while cellular respiration stores energy. Photosynthesis used carbon dioxide, while cellular respiration produces carbon dioxide.

How they are different!

Oxygen is produced during cellular respiration and stored during photosynthesis. Carbon dioxide and water released by cellular respiration are used in photosynthesis. Photosynthesis releases the energy that is stored during the process of cellular respiration.
