Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration


Photosynthesis is the capturing and using sunlight to transform water & carbon dioxide into oxygen & glucose. Photosynthesis happens in the chloroplast of plant, some protists, and some bacteria cells in order feed it's self. It's equation is 6CO2 + 6H2O >>> C6H12O6+6O2

Cellular Respiration

Cellular Respiration is the breaking down of oxygen & glucose in order to make water, carbon dioxide, and energy. Cellular Respiration happens in the mitochondria of many eukaryote cells.

Their Relationship

Photosynthesis which is only in autotrophs feed the mitochondria with glucose in order to release the chemical energy, so the plant can work.
