What are the similarities and difference between cellular respiration, fermentation, and photosynthesis? Well, cellular respiration is a series of chemical reactions that convert into energy in food molecules into a usable form of energy called ATP. Fermentation is a reaction that eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells can use to obtain energy from food when oxygen levels are low. Photosynthesis is a series of chemical reactions that convert light energy, water, and CO2 into the food-energy molecule glucose and give off oxygen. The similarities are, they all make energy/food to make energy.
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.
The relationship between Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration is that the reactants on photosynthesis are the products to cellular respiration, and the products of photosynthesis are the reactant. Photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while cellular respiration puts it back into the atmosphere. Photosynthesis releases oxygen into the atmosphere, and cellular respiration uses that oxygen to release energy from food. Cellular respiration and photosynthesis differ because they occur in different places and they do different things. Cellular respiration is the breakdown of glucose to release stored energy for a cell to use.
Photosynthesis is the process the energy from sun lights to produce ATP which is used to make sugar such as glucose, sucrose, cellulose, and starch. Photosynthesis involves two different processes, which are light dependent reaction and light independent reaction. Light dependent reaction requires light energy to split water molecules (photolysis) into hydrogen ions (H^+), oxygen (O_2) and electrons to make ATP and the light dependent reaction allows plants to grow and make a waste product (oxygen), energy conversion reactions, convert solar energy to chemical energy. In the light independent reaction stage, H^+ and ATP are used to fix 〖CO〗_2 to make organic molecules. Sugar can be produced by the process of Calvin cycle in the chloroplasts
When a plant has green leaves, the leaves appear green because the pigments inside the plant reflect the green light into our eyes and absorb the other colors in the light spectrum. The energy absorbed goes into Photosystem II and begins photosynthesis in the plant. The pigments inside of the cell are responsible
Photosynthesis and Respiration: Cellular respiration and photosynthesis are the two main processes carry out by most living organisms to attain energy. Whereas photosynthesis is performed by most plants that can make their own food, most animals achieve their energy necessities through cellular respiration. Photosynthesis: Light-dependent Reactions and Light-independent Reactions or dark reactions or Calvin Cycle are the stages of chemical reactions during the process of photosynthesis. Light Reactions: During the light reaction solar energy is transformed into chemical energy. The second stage is when synthesis (Calvin Cycle) uses the energy from the light reaction and change CO2 taken from the atmosphere into sugar.
Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is to see how long it takes for the 10 spinach leaf discs to undergo photosynthesis and thereby rise in the two solutions. Hypothesis: All of the leaf discs in the sodium bicarbonate solution should be floating before the discs in plain water because the bicarbonate is a carbon source that will allow photosynthesis to continue. Background: Light is absorbed by leaf pigments (chlorophyll) which makes electrons within a photosystem moved to a higher energy level. The leaves then make ATP, which reduces NADP to NADPH, and add CO2 into organic molecules. When the leaves go through the process of a light-dependent reaction by being placed in water, oxygen is created through photosynthesis and is released into the interior of the leaf.
This is result of auxin, the growth hormone present in plants. The hormones stimulate elongation on the dark side of the plant, creating a bend towards the light. The bending of the light allows more light to reach more parts of the plant. This is of great importance as light is a vital factor in a plant 's life, including in photosynthesis, the process wherein plants convert carbon dioxide into glucose for themselves and provide us with oxygen. The control group, plants 1 and 2, should grow straight upwards, due to the fact that light is hitting all parts of the plant, meaning auxin is not present more on side than the
Advanced Biology Photosynthesis Lab Report By Cheryl G11 Introduction & Background Photosynthesis is the process by which light energy is converted to chemical energy. It occurs within each chloroplast in most of the green plants, and Carbon dioxide is one of the main components of this process. Plants use photosynthesis to produce their own food (glucose), some water and the oxygen that we need. The overall balanced equation is: 12 H2O+ 6 CO2 → 6 H2O+ C6H12O6 + 6 O2 Sunlight energy Where: CO2 = carbon dioxide H2O = water Light energy is required C6H12O6 = glucose O2 = oxygen Purpose Through this experiment, we want
The majority of marine organisms use Coelenterazine in the process of bioluminescence. However, the only difference between each organism’s reaction is the type of luciferase each organism uses. Coelenterazine is used along with photo-proteins by Hydrozoans, Ctenophores, and Radiolarians. Coelenterazine is also well known for the fact that it is the light emitter of Aequorin. Aequorin was the first known photo-protein.
In other words, carbon dioxide, water and light are the reactants, and the products of photosynthesis are glucose and oxygen. Photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplast of plant cells. Respiration differs from photosynthesis because the reactants of respiration
Both photosynthesis and aerobic respiration are necessary processes in plants and provide energy. Aerobic respiration uses glucose (sugar) and oxygen to form carbon dioxide and energy while photosynthesis uses carbon dioxide and water to form glucose and oxygen. Photosynthesis may only occur during the day time while aerobic respiration occurs all the time. Since an increase in carbon dioxide levels indicates an increase in aerobic respiration and a decrease in photosynthesis, we can measure the net exchange of carbon dioxide levels and determine whether more photosynthesis or aerobic respiration at a particular time has occurred. We hypothesized that the beaker that is exposed to higher concentrations of light at a shorter distance from the lamp will produce lower amounts of carbon dioxide due to more available light energy.
Another air pollutant that triggers asthma attacks are ground level ozone. Ground level ozone is the toxic component of smog and it makes existing asthma worse. Ground level ozone major sources are from pollution from cars and smoke stacks react with sunlight and oxygen. Sulfur dioxide that aggravates the respiratory system. Sulfur dioxides are produced when coal and crude oil are burned.
Algae is an autotrophic protists that carry oxygen-generating photosynthesis. So by the water and the sun combining and the water running it down stream it enters the earth and helps the earth grow. Just like we need food, water, and sunlight to help our body function. The evolution of the eukaryotic has been around for some time. Eukaryotic represent new ways of organizing cell structures and novel strategies for propagating life.
The Mitochondria takes in nutrients (glucose,oxygen). It takes place in all living things (even plants).Animal takes in the oxygen and glucose. The sugar is broken down into Carbon Dioxide and water. Energy Pyramid In an Energy Pyramid there are 5 different levels. Producers, Decomposers,Primary Consumers,Secondary Consumers,and Tertiary Consumers.
