Transcript of Carbon moving through photosynthesis and cellular respiration

Plants absorb the carbon dioxide to produce carbohydrates.
Photosynthesis in the chloroplasts uses the carbon. Animals eat the carbon as carbohydrates
Cellular respiration breaks down the glucose molecule which has carbon. When the animals have finished
consuming the glucose, the carbon is released as carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Carbon Movement Maria Mejia

12-14-2012 Cellular Respiration Plants Animals Light-Independent Reactions Light Dependent Reactions Light independent reactions use chemical energy and carbon dioxide to build long term storage molecules, such as glucose.
The carbon is broken down by removing some of the atoms bonded to it
The resulting molecule contains a 3 atom chain.
Two molecules bond together to make a 6-carbon glucose molecule. These types of reactions do not require carbon
This does not affect the carbon cycle. Glycolysis Krebs Cycle A glucose molecule is broken apart which releases the carbon dioxide as a gas. Each turn of the Krebs cycle forms two more Carbon Dioxide molecules. 2009. Photograph. Florida Virtual School, n.p. Works Cited for Pictures
