What is the plant taking in? What is the plant giving off?
The process of converting light energy into chemical energy Location: Chloroplast/Chlorophyll Reactants: Carbon Dioxide, Water, and Sunlight Products: Oxygen O 2, Glucose Enzymes also required
Reactants Products CO 2 + H 2 O+ Sunlight Enzymes C 6 H 12 O 6 + O 2 Chlorophyll CO 2 = Carbon Dioxide C 6 H 12 O 6 = Glucose H 2 O = water O 2 = Oxygen gas * Balanced would be 6 CO 2 12 H 2 O, and 6 O 2
Which organelles do plants have that animals do not? Where does the plant get the water? Where does the plant get the carbon dioxide?
Chlorophyll is a green pigment found in the chloroplast of a plant. A pigment is a substance that absorbs light. Chlorophyll absorbs energy from all light except the green portion—which it reflects.
Chlorophyll breaks down in colder temperatures and shorter days Xanthophylls are red pigments Carotenes are yellow/orange pigments
Process of converting glucose into energy for the cell (ATP) Location: Mitochondria (Powerhouse) Reactants: Oxygen O 2, Glucose Products: Carbon Dioxide, Water, and ATP Enzymes also required
Reactants Products C 6 H 12 O 6 + O 2 Enzymes CO 2 + H 2 O+ ATP ALL living organisms carry out Cellular Respiration to make energy for cells PS and CR are OPPOSTIE reactions except Sunlight is Energy in PS and ATP is energy in CR.
ATP ADP + P Adenosine DiPhosphate Chemical Bonds are where the energy is stored. Energy is released when BONDS are broken. Example: Fuel does nothing in your car until it is ignited (bonds broken)
