Photosynthesis and Respiration- NO PICTURES
Photosynthesis vocabulary for a Grade 8 unit on Photosynthesis and Respiration at IGB International School in Malaysia
Terms in this set (18)
Absorbs radiant energy from the sun.
Pigment that gives a plant its green color. Found in the chloroplasts.
organelle found in plants where photosynthesis takes place.
gas that is a product of photosynthesis and a reactant of respiration
gas that is a reactant of photosynthesis and a product of respiration
the part of the plant where most photosynthesis takes place
energy from the sun that is used by plants to fuel the process of photosynthesis
tiny holes in the leaves of a plant where gases like carbon dioxide and oxygen enter and exit
the process that plants use to make their own food; combining carbon dioxide gas and water with sunlight to produce glucose (sugar) and oxygen gas
Photosynthesis word equation
carbon dioxide + water + radiant energy ---> glucose + oxygen
Photosynthesis chemical equation
6CO2 + 6H2O --> C6H12O6 + 6O2
the type of sugar made during photosynthesis; stores energy from the sun and is used by plants and animals as "food"
a substance that is formed by a chemical reaction
a substance that undergoes a chemical reaction to form something new
law of conservation of matter
matter is neither created nor destroyed, it simply changes forms
process that combines the glucose that we eat with the oxygen we breathe to produce water and carbon dioxide gas; releases ATP which is used to power cell functions
respiration word equation
glucose + oxygen ---> carbon dioxide +. water + ATP (energy)
respiration chemical equation
C6H12O6 + 6O2 ---> 6CO2 +6 H2O + ATP (energy)
Adenosine Triphosphate; energy released during respiration used to power cell functions
