What is photosynthesis?
R= is the process plants use to change carbon dioxide and water into sugar usingsunlight. This sugar is glucose, is their food, and the process give away oxygen.

Where does it occur?
R= in the chloroplast of plants

What happens during the light stage? How would you put it ina chemical equation?
R=water is broken in hydrogen and oxygen. Hydrogen stays in chloroplasts and oxygen leaves as gas.
Chemical Equation= ADP + NADP + H20 ATP + NADPH +02

What happens duringthe dark stage? How would you put it in a chemical equation?
R= carbon dioxide is used to form glucose (and other sugars) Glucose is used in cell wall for energy storage or cellular respiration.Chemical Equation= ATP + NADPH + CO2 ADP+ NADP+ Glucose

What is cellular respiration? What are the three steps needed for cellular respiration?
R= is the process to produce energy. Glucose turns intoenergy. The 3 steps are Glycolysis, Krebs cycle, and Electron Transfer Chain.

What is the chemical equation for cellular aerobic respiration?
R= C6H12O6 + 6 O2 -> 6 H2O+6 CO2

why canautotrophs do both: photosynthesis and cellular respiration?
R= because autotrophs can produce the food (photosynthesis) and they can process the food (cellular respiration).

Make a comparative chartbetween Light and Dark stages of photosynthesis
Light Stage | Dark Stage |
Water is broken into hydrogen and oxygen | Carbon Dioxide is used to form glucose |
Hydrogen stays in chloroplast |Glucose is used in cell for energy storage in cell way for energy storage or for cellular respiration. |
Oxygen Leave as gas | Oxygen goes out of the plant |

Make a comparative chart betweenCellular respiration and fermentation
Cellular respiration | Fermentation |
Produces to produce. Glucose turns into energy. | Is the type of anaerobic pathway the harvests energy from carbohydrates....
