Photosynthesis & Cellular Resp.

By: Katherine Turner


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.


Release energy that was stored in sugar
