PHOTOSYNTHESIS AND CELLULAR RESPIRATION We will examine the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide between living things and the environment. Created by: Mrs. Michele Glover 7th Grade Science Greenbrier Middle, 2008 For: 7th Grade Science Students
Key Elements Chloroplasts - Organelles found only in plant cells that carry out photosynthesis. Mitochondria - Organelles found in plant and animal cells that carry out cellular respiration.
EQUATION FOR PHOTOSYNTHESIS 6CO 2 + 6H 2 O + ENERGY produces C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6O 2 CARBON DIOXIDE WATER GLUCOSE OXYGEN Reactants Products
EQUATION FOR RESPIRATION C 6 H 12 O 6 + GLUCOSE 6O 2 OXYGEN produces 6CO 2 + CARBON DIOXIDE 6H 2 O + ENERGY WATER ATP Reactants Products
Lesson Summary Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are related. How? Photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplast of plant cells. Cellular respiration occurs in the mitochondria of plant and animal cells. Whenever you see an arrow in our equations, think “produces”. Reactants produce products. Remember, what one produces the other one needs. It is a cycle.
