organisms use chemical energy to make carbon based molecules
photosynthesis
captures energy from sunlight to make sugars that store energy
chlorophyll
molecule in chloroplasts that absorbs energy in visible light.
thylakoids
coin shaped membrane compartments
light dependant
captures energy from sunlight
light independant

cell respiration
releases chemical energy from sugars and carbon to make ATP
aerobic
needs oxygen
glyolysis
splits glucose into 3 carbon molecules and makes 2 ATP molecules
anaerobic
doesnt need oxygen
krebs cycle
produces molecules that carry energy to 2nd part of cell respiration
