Some bacteria and plants use light energy from the sun to make food (in the form of sugar).
What materials go into photosynthesis?
Water, carbon dioxide and sunlight energy.
What are the products of photosynthesis?
Glucose (sugar) and oxygen
What substance within the leaf absorbs sunlight energy?
Chlorophyll is contained within this organelle.
Where are gases exchanged by the plant during photosynthesis?
Stomata (small openings in the leaves)
Identify the independent variable in the following experiment: How does the distance a plant is from a light source affect the rate of photosynthesis?
Distance from the light
A process used by living organisms to release the energy stored in the bonds that hold glucose together.
What is necessary to break apart glucose during cellular respiration?
What is released from the process of cellular respiration?
Carbon dioxide, water vapor and energy.
Tiny holes in the leaves that allow gases (Carbon dioxide, water vapor, and oxygen ) to go in and out.
Sugar produced during photosynthesis.
The part of a plant cell (organelle) where photosynthesis takes place.
