5 True/False Questions
Cell Respiration → catabolic pathway in which organic molecules are broken down to release energy for use by the cell.
Metabolism → all of the chemical reactions that occur within a cell. Some make and some break things apart.
Calvin cycle → light-independent reactions during phase two of photosynthesis in which energy is stored in organic molecules as glucose.
Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) → metabolic process in which pyruvate is broken down and electron-carrier molecules are used to produce ATP through electron transport.
Thylakoid → in chloroplasts, one of the stacked, flattened, pigment-containing membranes in which light dependent reactions occur. the site for the electron transport system for photosynthesis.
