Photosynthesis Vocab

Photosynthesis The process by which plants convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into food energy.
Cellular Resperation The chemical process that generates most of the energy in the cell.
Chloroplast An elongated cell organelle containing chlorophyll where photosynthesis takes place.
Chlorophyll A green molecule which uses light energy from sunlight to change water and carbon dioxide gas into sugar and oxygen.
Glucose The food for the plant.
Mitochondria Rod-shaped organelles with a double membrane which converts the energy stored in glucose into ATP for the cell.
Photosynthesis Equation H2O + CO2 + light --> O2 + C6H12O6
Respiration Equation O2 + C6H1206 --> H20 + CO2 + ATP
Carbon Dioxide Enters the plant through small openings on the underside of the leaves called stomata. Once in the leaves, the water and carbon dioxide move into the chloroplasts.
Diffusion The movement of molecules from an area in which they are highly concentrated to an area in which they are less concentrated.
Osmosis The diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane.
Active Transport The movement of materials through a cell membrane using cellular energy.
