Respiration and Photosynthesis

Comparing and Contrasting

Respiration

Respiration is defines as the transport of oxygen from the outside air to the inside of your body. Which is also how you breathe.

Cellular Respiration

Cellular respiration is defines as the metabolic process by which an organism obtains energy by reacting oxygen with glucose to give water, carbon dioxide and 38ATP.

Photosynthesis

  • happens in chloroplasts
  • in the presence of light
  • input:carbon dioxide and water
  • out put: glucose and oxygen
  • light
  • energy stored
Photosynthesis

Respiration

  • mitochondria
  • all the time
  • input: glucose and water
  • out put: carbon dioxide and water
  • chemical bonds
  • energy released
