What is the equation for Photosynthesis?
6CO2 + 6H20 + (energy) → C6H12O6 + 6O2 Carbon dioxide + water + energy from light produces glucose and oxygen
What is the equation for Cellular respiration?
C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6 O 2 --> 6 CO 2 + 6 H 2 O + ATP is the complete balanced chemical formula for cellular respiration.
In what organelle does photosynthesis take place? In what organelle does cell respiration take

Know the main parts of the human systems and their main functions; Endocrine, Circulatory, Respiratory, Muscular, Skeletal, Immune and Excretory
The endocrine system is the collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood, among other things.
The circulatory system is the system that circulates blood and lymph through the body, consisting of the heart, blood vessels, blood, lymph, and the lymphatic vessels and glands.
The human respiratory system is a series of organs responsible for taking in oxygen and expelling carbon dioxide. The primary organs of the respiratory system are lungs, which carry out this exchange of gases as we breathe.
The muscular system is an organ system consisting of skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles. It permits movement of the body, maintains posture and circulates blood throughout the body.
The skeletal system is the body system composed of bones, cartilages, ligaments and other tissues that perform essential functions for the human body. Bone tissue, or osseous tissue, is a hard, dense connective tissue that forms most of the adult skeleton, the internal support structure of the body.
The immune system is the body's defense against infectious organisms and other invaders. ... The immune system is made up of a network of cells, tissues, and organs that work together to protect the body.
The excretory system is the system of an organism's body that performs the function of excretion, the bodily process of discharging wastes. The Excretory system is responsible for the elimination of wastes produced by homeostasis.
How do each of the systems interact with each other?
Each system is connected. The immune system cannot work without the excretory system and it's the same with each one.
What is metamorphosis? What organisms go through this process?
(In an insect or amphibian) the process of transformation from an immature form to an adult form in two or more distinct stages.
What are the reproductive parts of a flower?
Stamens are the male reproductive parts of flowers. A stamen consists of an anther (which produces pollen) and a filament. The pollen consists of the male reproductive cells; they fertilize ovules.
Where is the stored source of food for a plant?
The sun is food for the plant because the plant creates energy by photosynthesis.
What is a vaccine?
A substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease
How many chromosomes does a sex cell contain? How many chromosomes does a body cell contain?
A sex cell has 48 chromosomes and the body has 24.
