the process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to synthesize foods from carbon dioxide and water. Photosynthesis in plants generally involves the green pigment chlorophyll and generates oxygen as a byproduct.
WHY IS PHOTOSYNTHESIS IMPORTANT?
what does ATP look like?
we cannot make our food (glucose, energy) we must get our food from plants.Plants are the first step in the food chain.
Plants that are denied sufficient light will eventually losetheir color and die.
WHAT HAPPENS TO PLANTS WHEN THERE IS NO SUN OR WATER?
What is cellular respiration? once the energy that was in sunlight is changed into chemical energy by photosynthesis, an organism has to transform the chemical energy into a from that can be used by the organism.
We cannot make our own food (glucose,energy),we must get our food from plants.Plants are the steep in the food chain.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT TO US?
-adenine ( nitrogenous base) -ribose (sugar) -3 phosphate groups
Energy is released when the bond between the last two phosphate groups is broken
-food does in contain ATP -food contains macromolecules that can be broken down to male ATP -plants and animals preform cellular respiration to convert the energy stored in food into ATP
