In conclusion, the similarities are that they all make food or energy and create sugar or use sugar. On the other hand, photosynthesis only happens in a plant cells and both cellular respiration and fermentation happen in animal and plant cells. Cellular respiration is basically the reverse of photosynthesis. Also, fermentation doesn’t need oxygen to make energy. This shows how cellular respiration, fermentation, and photosynthesis are similar and
Taking place within plants and some bacteria, more specifically the chloroplasts. The chloroplasts, located in the leaves, absorb light. What gets the carbon dioxide, though, are the pores on the leaves, which are called stomata. Carbon dioxide enters there and oxygen leaves. This is the opposite of the cellular respiration is as humans go through.
The stomata are the most critical piece to this process, as this is where CO2 enters and can be stored, and where water and O2 exit. Cellular respiration also known as oxidative metabolism is important to convert biochemical energy from nutrients in the cells of living organisms to useful energy known as adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Without cellular respiration living organisms would not be able to sustain life. This process is done by cells exchanging gases within its surroundings to create adenosine triphosphate commonly known as ADT, which is used by the cells as a source of energy. This process is done through numerous reactions; an example is metabolic pathway.
Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are processes that help human beings live. The reactants in photosynthesis are carbon dioxide, water, and the sunlight’s energy. The products of these reactants are glucose and oxygen. Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplasts in only plant cells. This is when plants convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose by using the sun’s energy.
Roles of each consist of the nucleus contain genetic material, which controls the actions of the cell, the cytoplasm is where the most chemical process happens and I controlled by enzymes. The Cell membrane controls the flow to and from the cell, the Mitochondria has the most energy released by respiration. In the Ribosomes protein synthesis occurs, and in the extra parts of the plant structure is functions like the cell wall, which strengthens it. The Chloroplasts contains chlorophyll, it absorbs the light for photosynthesis, and finally the permanent vacuole is filled with cell sap that helps keep the cell
Autotrophs store chemical energy in carbohydrate food molecules they build themselves. Most autotrophs use sunlight to make food, the process is called photosynthesis. Plants, algae, and some bacteria can use photosynthesis. The reactants of photosynthesis are carbon dioxide and water, captures energy into chemical bonds. The products are sugar and oxygen.
One of the focuses of this semester was the ability to identify biological processes that require energy and explain why they require energy. In the work I completed I demonstrated being able to accomplish this. This occurred in several different projects, including the cellular respiration lab involving the respiration rate of germinating seeds, the potato core lab and the photosynthesis lab. In these labs, we were able to identify the biological processes that required energy for the different processes to take place to allow germination to occur. As the main focus of all of these labs was testing a
Nutrition – nutrition is the course of taking food by an organism and consumption of food for energy. This is essential as it provides living beings to acquire their energy from diverse sources. Nutrients are the material which delivers
Introduction: Photosynthesis is a process used by plants and specific types of bacteria in order to make their own food source from sunlight to chemical energy. It is mainly occurred within the leaves of the plant. The reaction requires light energy in order for it to be absorbed by chlorophyll. During the reaction carbon dioxide, water is converted into glucose and oxygen as shown below: Figure 1 (photosynthesis uses light energy to convert carbon dioxide into a carbohydrate) (The Chemical Equation of Photosynthesis. 2018, Accessed 16 March 2018) There are two types of photosynthetic processes; one includes oxygenic photosynthesis, which is most common and demonstrated through plants, algae and cyanobacteria while the other one is an-oxygenic photosynthesis.
Phosphorous is absorbed by the earths sphere, biosphere such as plants through their roots acting as an extra source of food. Phosphorous is needed for plants as it helps plant growth. One of animal’s main food sources is plants meaning in order for the phosphorous cycle to continue animals need to consume the plants which contain phosphorous. After the animals have consumed the plants
