Hobbes, I'm hungry. I wonder what mom made for lunch.
You're hungry, huh? Well, do you know how plants get their food? From Photosynthesis!
The sun is giving sunlight to the plants and other organisms to absorb energy.
They use this energy to convert it to carbon dioxide and water into sugars and oxygen. Thes sugars that are produced are called glucose.
Hobbes, I don't really want to-
In the first stage, glucose is broken down and oxygen is NOT involved, then a small amount of energy is released. Then in the second stage, the small molecules are broken down into even smaller molecules. Energy is required for this, but it releases more energy to use. And that's how plants get their energy. And What are you doing Calvin?
HOBBES! JUST STOP! Your boring me! (Yawn)
After this processes, some of the sugars are used for food and energy, for cell functions, like growing, or producing seeds. While ofters are made unto compounds, like some can be stored.
Photosynthesis has two stages, one, for capturing the sun's energy. And two, using that energy to make food. Basically, the energy is captured and stored in the chlorophyll, which is located in the chloroplast and it's a green pigment. The water is split into two, oxygen and hydrogen.
There is another processes called, "Cellular Respiration". Basically, cells obtain energy from breaking down glucose (energy) . There are two stages of cell respiration, 1-takes place in the cytoplasm, 2-in the mitochondria.
Hobbies, the tiger, is talking for a long time.
I'm trying to produce photosynthesis because I'm STARVING!
Lets go, I'm starving! I wonder what's for dinner.
You know that humans can't produce photosynthesis...Just nevermind
Ooooooo, I sure hope that dinner is photosynthesis!
