What is photosynthesis? The process by which a cell captures energy in sunlight and uses it to make food
Producer An organism that makes its own food or an autotroph
Consumer An organism that cannot make its own food or an heterotroph
Autotroph An organism that makes its own food
Heterotroph An organism that cannot make its own food
Stoma Aloe gases such as carbon dioxide water vapor and oxygen to move rapidly into and out of the leaf
Glucose Hydrogen and carbon dioxide go through the reactions the result in sugar
How does a plant capture the sun's energy? By chlorophyll in the chloroplasts
What enters the plant through the stoma? Co2
What happens to the water? Turns into glucose
How do they make sugars/ glucose using the hydrogen and oxygen from the water? By a chemical reaction
What is the waste product of photosynthesis? Oxygen
What is chlorophyll? Works like the solar cells in a solar powered calculator
Photosynthesis equation in words… not the chemical equation! Sunlight is absorbed by chlorophyll in the chloroplasts. That solar energy is used to split the water into hydrogen and oxygen. During a series of chemical reactions that hydrogen forms with carbon dioxide that enters the plant through the stomata or form
Products and reactants of photosynthesis (what does the cell need for photosynthesis to happen and what comes out of the process?) It needs light energy, carbon dioxide, water, glucose, and oxygen
Explain the process of photosynthesis in steps or stages
