photosynthesis capturing and transforming energy from the sunlight into chemical energy; this process also requires chlorophyll, a molecule in chloroplasts
cellular respiration chemical equation C6 H12 O6 + 6 O2 --> 6 CO2 + 6 H2O +Energy
photosynthesis chemical equation 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + light energy --> C6 H12 O6 + 6 O2
carbon fixation the incorporation of CO2 into an organic compound [glucose] during photosynthesis
light intensity intensity increase rate of photosynthesis, but up to a point
temperature increases photosynthesis, but up to a point because they affect enzyme activity
water shortage of this slows photosynthesis down
mineral ability if a shortage exists, metabolic processes will be inhibited
