science vocab 3

Photosynthesis A process in which plants convert sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide into food energy (sugar), oxygen, and water
Cellular Respiration The process by which the chemical energy of "food" molecuels is released and changed into ATP (energy)
Chloroplasts 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 sugar or food that the plants make for themselves
Mitochondria Rod-shaped organelles with a double membrane which converts stored in glucose into ATP (energy) for the cell
Photosynthesis Equation H2O+CO2+Light=O2+C6H12O6 [Water+Carbon Dioxide+Light=Oxygen+Glucose (Sugar)]
Respiration Equation O2+C6H12O6=H2O+CO2+ATP [Oxygen+Glucose (Sugar)=Water+Carbon Dioxide+energy]
Diffusion The movement of molecules from a dense area to a less dense area (no energy used)
Osmosis The diffusion of water across a selectively permeable membrane
Active Transport The movement of materials between a cell membrane (uses energy)
Carbon Dioxide a colorless, odorless gas produced by respiration and is absorbed by plants in photosynthesis.
