Comparing photosynthesis and cellular respiration

Where and when does photosynthesis occur? In the chloroplasts and in the presence of sunlight.
Where and when does cellular respiration occur? In the mitrochondria and it happens all of the time.
What is the input (reactants) for photosynthesis? Carbon dioxide and water.
What is the output (products) for photosynthesis? Glucose and oxygen.
What is the input (reactants) for cellular respiration? Glucose and oxygen.
What is the output (products) for cellular respiration? Carbon dioxide and water.
Which process includes an endothermic reaction? (Energy is being stored) Photosynthesis
Which process includes an exothermic reaction? (Energy is being released) Cellular Respiration
What is the function of photosynthesis? To produce food.
What is the function of cellular respiration? To break down food for energy.
What is the formula for glucose? C6H12O6
What kind of energy is needed for photosynthesis? Sunlight (Solar radiation)
What kind of energy is produced in cellular respiration? ATP energy.
Who uses photosynthesis? Plants, algae.
Who uses cellular respiration? Plants and animals.
How are photosynthesis and cellular respiration similar? They use the same elements and molecules. They are both needed for animals and plants to stay alive.
How are photosynthesis and cellular respiration different? Photosynthesis occurs in chloroplasts and plants; cellular respiration occurs in mithochondria and in both plants and animals.
Why is photosynthesis important? Plants and animals need the food produced by photosynthesis in order to survive.
Why is cellular respiration important? Plants and animals need it in order to break down glucose for energy.
Where do plants and animals store extra food? In seeds, bulbs, and fruit in plants. In fat in humans.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then tap the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, tap the green Know box. Otherwise, tap the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, tap "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just tap on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
