Storyboard Text

  • Hey Frank, I know this is kind of random, but what is "energy conversion"- in terms of cells?
  • You see, ATP (or adenosine triphosphate) is the source of energy for active transport, which is where molecules travel across cell membranes to an area of higher concentration.
  • ATP
  • CO2
  • It starts with chloroplasts. They take in sunlight, CO2, and water, producing glucose (sugar) and oxygen through photosynthesis. Diatoms (a type of phytoplankton) utilize this, as they get their food from water (H2O), CO2, and sunlight.
  • Water
  • 
  • O2
  • Sugar
  • O2
  • Mitochondria are different. Instead of undergoing photosynthesis, they go through cellular respiration, converting that oxygen and sugar into CO2, water, and 38 ATP (energy) for every glucose molecule.
  • Sugar
  • 
  • CO2
  • Water
  • ATP
  • CO2
  • It all moves in a cycle, chloroplasts and mitochondrion creating what the other needs. It is important to remember that only plant cells have chloroplasts, but both plant and animal cells have mitochondrion.
  • ATP
  • Water
  • Cellular Respiration
  • Photosynthesis
  • O2
  • Sugar
  • My name isn't Frank, but you're welcome.
  • Thanks fro the clarification, Frank.
