How does photosynthesis work?
What is Cellular Respiration
As you can see in this photo there are many different plants, these plants produce oxygen by the process of photosynthesis for all the animals and living things in the ecosystem.
The process of photosynthesis starts in the leaves. In the green leaves there is the chloroplast the chloroplast uses the sun's energy to produce glucose. In the chlorophyll ( acts as the reactant) which converts the carbon dioxide the plants take in from water and air into oxygen. Plants are Aerobic meaning they require water) and anything that is nonliving is Anaerobic. Plants are also heterotrophs meaning it produces its own food. And humans and animals are autotrophic meaning they obtain there own food not make it.
After the process of photosynthesis oxygen is released into the air, in which that is the first part of cellular respiration. Cellular respiration is the process of breathing in humans and animals. Taking in oxygen and breathing out carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide that the plants then take in and start the whole cycle again. When humans and animals take it in the humans cell reactant ( the Mitochondria) converts air and food into atp energy
