Photosynthesis and Cellular Resp
By: Nathan Anchondo
Photosynthesis happens in the chloroplast. It requires reactants which are water, carbon dioxide and energy which it gets from the sun through sunlight. Once it goes through the process it makes oxygen and glucose. The plant uses the glucose and lets the oxygen out which is then used in cellular respiration. Photosynthesis is only in plants unlike cellular respiration.
Cellular respiration happens in the mitochondria and uses what photosynthesis produces are its products. It uses the oxygen and glucose to make carbon dioxide water and ATP(energy) through the Calvin Cycle. This Cycle happens without sunlight. It also happens in both plants and animals.
