Photosynthesis Cellular Respiration

Photosynthesis

Light energy+CO2+H20->C6H12O6+O2+H2O

  • Done by autotrophs only
  • Photosynthesis traps light energy and changes it into chemical energy
  • It takes place in the chloroplast of leaves

Cellular Respiration

C6H12O6+O2+H2O->energy+CO2+H2O

  • Done by both autotrophs and heterotrophs
  • Cellular respiration is used as a tool to breakdown sugar into energy
  • It takes place in the mitochondria of cells
