Respiration & Photosynthesis

By: Nithya & Katherine

What is photosynthesis?

  • Plants use the process of photosynthesis to feed themselves
  • Carbon Dioxide + Water + Light -------> Sugar+Oxygen ( This is what photosynthesis looks like)
  • Needs sunlight
  • Happens in autotropes
  • Happens in chloroplasts

What is Cellular Respiration?

  • Breakdown of Glucose molecule
  • Release of energy stored in glucose molecule
  • Occurs in Mitochondria
  • Released energy is used then lost, during cell function
  • Waste products are CO2 and H2O


Waste products of cellular respiration go back to the plant where the plant breaks apart the carbon dioxide and water. Then it changes to light energy into chemical energy and stores the energy into the glucose molecule.
