Photosynthesis & Cellular Resp.

By: Katherine Turner

Photosynthesis

Plant's take in sunlight, water[H2O] and carbon dioxide [CO2] to make it's own food. This process is called Photosynthesis and it takes place in the chloroplast. When all this process is done it makes oxygen [O2] and glucose [C6H12O6].

Reactants:Water, Carbon Dioxide Product: Oxygen, Glucose

Happens only with plants.

6CO2 +6H2O → Sunlight →C6H12O6+6O2

Cellular Respiration

Respiration happens in the Mitochondria. This is the process when oxygen and glucose is taken in and it creates carbon dioxide, water and releases energy.

C6H12O6+6O2→6CO2+6H2O+energy

Release energy that was stored in sugar
