hello students, today we will be studying the process of photosynthesis and cellular respiration within a plant.
photosynthesis is the process of plants creating their own food using solar energy. plants are labeled as autotrophs because they create their own food ,and we are labeled as heterotrophs for needing to consume other producers/animals in order to gain ATP.
plants are the only ones who have cell walls and cell membranes!
Well lets think about what we know...
but how does photosynthesis and cellular respiration work together?
so what do plants have that helps them create their own food and get nutrients? and what is their structure?
all cells contain mitochondria which is the power house on the cell!
