What are the raw materials and products of photosynthesis?

The raw materials- carbon dioxide,water
products- are oxygen and glucose.

1

How does photosynthesis help heterotrophs?

When we eat food from plants, we are eating the plant's stored energy

2

Where is energy from the sun captured in a plant?

It is captured in the chlorophyll

3

Where does oxygen and carbon dioxide enter and exit a leaf

stomata's

4

What happens during respiration?

Cells break down glucose and other molecules from food using oxygen, then releasing energy

5

What are the raw materials? What are the products?of cellular respiration?

The raw materials are oxygen and glucose. The products are carbon dioxide and water and energy

6

What makes photosynthesis and cellular respiration opposite processes?

Photosynthesis' products are cellular respiration's raw materials and photosynthesis' raw materials are cellular respiration's products.

7

What is the process that requires no oxygen? What are the two examples of this?

Fermentation uses no oxygen. Alcoholic- yeast and Lactic Acid-muscles are two different types of fermentation

8

What does Cell division allow( three ideas)

Cell Division allows organisms to grow, repair damaged structures, and reproduce.

9

What are the three stages of the cell cycle? What are the three major concepts of the
cell cycle?

The three stages are interphase, mitosis, and Cytokinesis. The three major concepts are the cell growing, divides into two new cells, and prepares for cell division.

10

Describe cell division in an animal cell. Describe cell division in a plant cell.

In an animal cell the cell membrane squeezes together around the middle of the cell, the cytoplasm pinches into two cells, and each daughter cell gets about half of the organelles of the parent cell. In a plant cell the plant cell's rigid cell wall cannot squeeze together in the same way that an cell membrane can. Instead, a structure called a cell plate forms across the middle of the cell. The cell plate begins to form new cell membranes between the two daughter cells. New cell walls then form around the cell membranes

11

What is happening during replication?

The cell makes an exact copy of it's DNA in the nucleus

12

What happens during mitosis to the nucleus?

The nucleus divides into two new nuclei and one set of DNA is distributed into each daughter cell.

13

The process by which cell captures energy in sunlight and uses it to make food

photosynthesis

14

An organism that makes its own food

autotroph

15

An organism that cannot make its own food

heterotroph

16

The main pigment for photosynthesis in chloroplasts

chlorophyll

17

Are organelles that capture energy from sunlight and use it to produce food for the cell

chloroplasts

18

photosynthesis equation

Carbon dioxide plus water plus light energy yields glucose and oxygen

19

The beginning of the equations

raw materials

20

The end of the equation

products

21

The regular sequence of growth and division that cells undergo

cell cycle

22

During this stage the cell grows, makes a copy of its DNA, and prepares to divide into two cells

interphase

23

The process which the cell makes an exact copy of the DNA in its nucleus

replication

24

Within the nucleus DNA and proteins form threadlike structures. They are?

chromosomes

25

During this stage the cells nucleus divides into two new nuclei and one set of DNA is distributed into each daughter cell

mitosis

26

During this phase the nucleus is still there, and chromosomes are thickening

prophase

27

During this phase chromosomes line up in the middle waiting to be pulled apart and the nucleus disappears

metaphase

28

During this phase chromosomes move from the middle to the opposite sides and spindles have fibers which help move chromosomes away

anaphase

29

During this phase 2 identical cells are formed and two nuclei

telophase
