Transcript of what is the chemical reaction for cellular respiration?

what is the chemical reaction for cellular respiration?

The reactions within cells which result in the synthesis of ATP using energy stored in glucose are referred to as cellular respiration. Aerobic respiration requires oxygen as the final electron acceptor. Fermentation does not require oxygen.

what is the chemical reaction for photosynthesis?

The green light we can see is not/cannot be absorbed by the plant, and thus cannot be used to do photosynthesis. The overall chemical reaction involved in photosynthesis is: 6CO2 + 6H2O (+ light energy) → C6H12O6 + 6O2.
what are the differences between photosynthesis and cellular respiration?

photosynthesis needs energy to make glucose, while cellular respiration uses this glucose to actually create energy.
what is the role of photosynthesis in the cells?

The role is to make glucose so it can be used as energy for the cell.
what is the role of cellular respiration in cells?

To break down the energy and release it to the rest of the cell.
what are the similarities between photosynthesis and cellular respiration?

They can not occur if there is no sunlight.
cellular respiration

the oxidation of organic compounds that occurs within cells, producing energy for cellular processes.


the complex process by which carbon dioxide, water, and certain inorganic salts are converted into carbohydrates by green plants, algae, and certain bacteria, using energy from the sun and chlorophyll.
