Link to the condensed version of Photosynthesis & Respiration  



Photosynthesis


" Welcome to the Dark Side of Photosynthesis "




Photosynthesis - Using the energy from the sun to make glucose (starch)

LIGHT + 6 CO2 + 12 H2O ----> C6H12O6 + 6 O2 + 6 H2O

Chloroplast - The organelle where photosynthesis occurs

          Chlorophyll - main energy (sunlight) absorber

Light Reactions - Making ATP

          Chemiosmosis - Using (solar) energy to recycle and combine ADP and P to make ATP

Dark Reactions - Using the energy (ATP) and carbon dioxide to make sugar and then storing it as starch




Cellular Respiration


" We breathe in oxygen 24 hours a day for this ?? "




Cellular Respiration - Using macromolecules to produce energy packets called ATP

C6H12O6 + 6 O2 + 6 H2O -----> 12 H2O + 6 CO2 + 36 ATP + HEAT

Mitochondria - The organelle where cellular respiration occurs

Glycolysis - Make energy carriers including 2 ATP's

Krebs Cycle - Make energy carriers including 2 more ATP's

Electron Transport Chain - Use energy carriers to make the last 32 ATP's for a total of 36 ATP's from 1 glucose molecule

          Chemiosmosis - Using (food) energy to recycle and combine ADP and P to make ATP

          Metabolic Water - Water that is made at the end of the electron transport chain to remove the electrons that are out of energy.

Anaerobic Respiration / Fermentation - Only make 2 ATP's instead of 36 ATP's and also the byproduct Lactic Acid or Alcohol (Bacteria)
