Photosynthesis and cellular respiration

This storyboard does not have a description.
Light-independent reactions of photosynthesis is when carbon dioxide and other compounds are converted into glucose (occur in the stroma). Light-dependent reactions is, the biochemical reactions in photosynthesis that require light energy to be converted into chemical energy in the form of ATP and NADPH.
What about the light-dependent and light-independent reactions?
Cellular respiration makes glucose and that turns into glycolysis, which makes 2 ATP, then changed to pyruvate(s). Without oxygen being present, then it’s changed into fermentation, then changed into lactic acid or ethanol. With oxygen present then it‘s changed Into oxidative decarboxylation, then the Krebs Cycle and Electron Transport Chain happens (In Mitochondria). That makes up 36 ATP.
Explain Cellular Respiration to me.
It’s when our muscle cells deal with pyruvate during anaerobic respiration. When our cells need energy, they break down simple molecules like glucose, the cells turn into pyruvate, the products of glycolysis, into lactic acid.
What is Lactic Acid Fermentation?
