Flashcards in 1. Photosynthesis, Respiration and Energy - Photo and Energy Deck (9)
Why is energy important?
Plants and animal cells need energy for biological processes.
Name 3 things energy is needed for in plants.
Name 3 things energy is needed for in animals.
What would happen if the biological processes stopped?
The plant or animal would die.
What happens in the process of photosynthesis?
Energy from light is used to make glucose from water and carbon dioxide.
The light energy converted into chemical energy in form of glucose.
What is the overall equation for photosynthesis?
6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy ----> C6H12O6 + 6O2
In the plants where is the energy stored?
In the glucose until plants release it by respiration.
How to animals obtain glucose?
