Photosynthesis and respiration help each other in their cycle. Photosynthesis is light energy is absorbed by chlorophyll, a green substance found in chloroplasts in some plant cells.
Absorbed light energy is used to convert carbon dioxide from the air and water from the soil into a sugar called glucose. Oxygen is released as a by-product.
And during respiration, the plant needs oxygen and glucose, which are both produced through photosynthesis. Oxygen and glucose are both reactants in the process of cellular respiration.
During photosynthesis a plant consumes water, carbon dioxide, and light energy, and produces glucose and oxygen. The sugar glucose is important because it is necessary for cellular respiration.
The equation for photosynthesis and respiration - Cellular Respiration: C6H12O6 + 6O2 → 6CO2 + 6H2O Photosynthesis: 6CO2 + 6H2O → C6H12O6+ 6O2
Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are connected through an important relationship. This relationship enables life to survive as we know it. The products of one process are the reactants of the other. The equation for cellular respiration is the direct opposite of photosynthesis.
