producers use light energy to convert water and carbon dioxide into oxygen and high-energy carbohydrates such as glucose.
breaking down glucose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen to make energy ( ATP - adenosine triphosphate).
membrane-bound organelle where photosynthesis takes place.
membrane-bound organelle where cellular respiration takes place.
Light + C6H12O6 + 6O2 --> 6CO2 + 6H2O
Cellular respiration equation
C6H12O6 + 6O2 --> 6CO2 + 6H2O + ATP
ATP (adenosine triphosphate)
a molecule used as energy currency for the cell
A substance that takes part in a reaction and undergoes change during that reaction.
A substance that is produced by a chemical reaction.
substance that speeds up the rate of a chemical reaction
protein that acts as a biological catalyst; it speeds up chemical reactions by lowering the activiation energy
energy needed to get a chemical reaction started
reactant in a chemical reaction using an enzyme
the small portion of an enzyme where substrate molecules bind and undergo a chemical reaction
an individual living thing that uses energy, reproduces, responds, grows, and develops
group of individuals of the same species that live in the same area
all living, or biotic, things in an area
all biotic (living) and abiotic (nonliving) things in an area
part of Earth in which life exists including land, water, and air or atmosphere
above-ground organs (leaves, stems, flowers)
below-ground organs (roots)
absorb water and minerals, anchor the plant to the ground
function to transfer water and minerals to the leaves; transport food (sap) downward from the leaves to the roots
function as the major photosynthetic (food making & gas exchange) organ of a plant
chemical produced in one part of an organism that affects another part of the same organism; aids in response of an organism to a stimulus (ex. auxin)
