- Plant Cells have molecules that absorb light energy.
- Molecules are called pigments.
- Chlorophyll is found in chloroplasts
- Chlorophyll (main pigment) gives plant green color.
- Uses energy captured from chlorophyll to change carbon dioxide into food.
- Sugar glucose is a carbohydrate. (found in photosynthesis.
Products and Reactants
Products and Reactants are what enters and leaves the cell.
Enters- Water and CO2
Leaves- Glucose sugar and H2O
Enters- H2O and Glucose Sugar
Leaves- ATP, Carbon dioxide, and water
- Photo. takes place in chloroplasts when CR takes place in Mitochondria.
- Photo. takes place in sun light when CR takes place all the time
- CO2 and H2O enters for photo. when Glucose and Oxygen enters for CR
- Glucose and Oxygen leaves for Photo. and CO2 and H2O leaves for CR
- Energy sources for Photo. is light and CR is Chemical bonds.
- ATP is a key molecule in each
- Mitochondria of cell respiration and chloroplasts of photosynthesis have distinct similarities
- Both use chemiosmosis to generate ATP
- Both rely on movement of electrons for operation
- Both use electron transport chains in production of ATP
