Cells and Energy

ATP a molecule that transfers energy from the breakdown of food molecules to cell processes
ADP a lower-energy molecule that can be converted into ATP by the addition of a phosphate group
chemosynthesis a process by which some organisms use chemical energy instead of light energy to make energy-storing carbon-based molecules
photosynthesis a process that captures energy from sunlight to make sugars that store chemical energy
chlorophyll a molecule in chloroplasts that absorbs some of the energy in visible light
thylakoid coin-shaped, membrane-enclosed compartments
light-dependent reactions reactions that capture energy from sunlight
light-independent reactions reactions that use energy from the light-dependent reactions to make sugars
photosystem groups of molecules in with energy in captured and transferred in the thylakoid membranes
electron transport chain a series of proteins in the membrane of the thylakoid
ATP synthase the process that makes ATP by adding phosphate groups to ADP
Calvin cycle chemical reactions that use carbon dioxide gas from the atmosphere and the energy carried by ATP and NADPH to make simple sugars
cellular respiration a process that releases chemical energy from sugars and other carbon-based molecules to make ATP when oxygen is present
aerobic a type of process that needs oxygen to take place
glycolysis the process that splits glucose into two three-carbon molecules and makes two molecules of ATP
anaerobic a type of process that does not need oxygen to take place
Krebs cycle the cycle that produces molecules that carry energy to the second part of cellular respiration
fermentation an anaerobic process that allows glycolysis to continue
lactic acid the substance that causes your muscles to "burn" during hard exercise

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
