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.
