3 What is Photosynthesis? Plants trap energy from the Sun in order to make sugars (glucose) for foodAll the action takes place in the chloroplastThe chloroplast uses the Sun’s energy to turn carbon dioxide and water into oxygen and glucose.
9 What is Cellular Respiration? Plants and animals use oxygen to break down food and release energy!This occurs in the mitochondria, which are the powerhouse of the cellThe mitochondria uses oxygen to break down glucose into energy and carbon dioxide
10 Mitochondria Cellular Respiration occurs here! Animals and plants break down glucose and absorb O2.Release CO2 and H2O.
