Photosynthesis

QuestionAnswer
Sun's Radiant Energy is a form of what type of energy Kinetic Energy
Sun's Radiant Energy travels by ... Waves/Particles
Sun's Radiant Energy can move through... Space
What type of energy is VITAL for plants to make their own food? Visble Light Energy
Why are plants green? Chloroplasts that have Chlorophyll -- Chlorophyll absorbs most of the colors in the visible light spectrum EXCEPT for green which is reflected.
3 Reactants Needed for a Green Plant to make it's own food... 1. Light Energy from the Sun 2. Water & Soil Nutrients 3. Carbon Dioxide
The food making process is called ... Photosynthesis
When does Photosynthesis occur? Daylight hours ONLY!
Light Energy only occurs in... Green Leaves
What is the function of the Xylem? Transport Water & Nutrients from roots to the leaves
What is the function of the Phloem? Transport food from the leaves to the rest of the plant.
What type of plants are the Xylem & Phloem found in? Vascular Plants
Where does CO2 enter into the leave? Stoma or Stomata
What do green plants do with CO2 They remove it from the atmosphere
What is the equation for Photosynthesis? 6CO2 + 6H2O -- (Light Energy) --> C6H12O6 + 6O2
What can plants do with Glucose (Sugar)? Plants can turn Glucose into starch. They use it for storage & fuel!
Oxygen (O2) moves out of the plant through which part ? The Stomata
What happens to O2 after Photosynthesis? It is put back into the atmosphere
Law of Conservation Mass The atoms on both sides of the equation must be equal! No Mass is created OR destroyed! (Count the atoms/elements on each side of the Photosynthesis equation -- There should be 6 C , 12 H & 18 O on both sides!
What is Respiration? This unlocks the energy that is produced by Photosynthesis.
What does Respiration do? Creates energy for growth, reproduction, and other life processes.
When does Respiration happen? This process happens both DAY & NIGHT!
What is the equation for Respiration? C6H12O6 + 6O2 ---> 6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy Light is NOT needed! Opposite of Photosynthesis formula!
