Cellular Respiration is the process by which organisms break down glucose and turn it into energy.
Plants perform photosynthesis, or a process that plants absorbs light, H20 and CO2 that produce glucose and oxygen. During photosynthesis, plants captures the light energy. This occurs in chloroplast. Most plants appear green because chlorophyll reflects the green light and other colors of lights. The water from the roots enters the leaf through stem and CO2 enters the leaf through stomata. This process forms sugar (glucose) and oxygen.

(CO2 + Water)
(Sugar + Oxygen)
After the process of photosynthesis, all organisms require energy to survive. This is when the cellular respiration do its job. It requires glucose and oxygen to produce CO2 and H20 and releases energy in the form of ATP. ATP is Adenosine triphosphate; a source of energy.
