What is the word equation for photosynthesis? carbon dioxide + oxygen ---> [sunlight] water + usable energy + glucose (glucose)
what is the process of cellular respiration? they take food (glucose) and make it into cellular energy.
What is the word equation for cellular respiration? water + glucose (sugar)---> [cells] carbon dioxide + oxygen
define extinct a species that is not found anywhere. (blue walleye passenger pigeon)

how does energy move in ecosystems? explain the 10% rule. 10% of the energy in food is used to make body tissues such as bones, muscles, and fat. 10% of the energy that the animal eats is available to pass on to the animal in which eats it. 90% is lost in transfers.
explain the process of the 10% rule theres 1 million joules of sunlight, the primany producers take 10% of that energy, the primary consumers eat the primary producers & gain 10% of their energy, then the secondary consumers gain 10% of theit energy, then the tertiary consumers get 10% 10j
