Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are two important metabolic processes. This is a question where both the process are compared and contrasted between each other among the reactants, products, ATP produced, organelles involved etc.
Sub: Biology Topic: Science and Technology Question: Cellular Respiration and Photosynthesis co-exist as paired metabolic processes. ClassOf1 provides expert guidance to College, Graduate, and High school students on homework and assignment problems in Math, Sciences, Finance, Marketing, Statistics, Economics, Engineering, and many other subjects. Photosynthesis uses light energy to convert carbon dioxide into glucose, a simple sugar, in two steps, the light dependent and light independent reactions. Oxygen is produced as a by product during photosynthesis. This reaction stores energy in the chemical bonds of glucose. Sugar and other carbohydrates are used as fuel sources by cells. During the process of Aerobic Cellular Respiration, glucose is broken down using oxygen. This reaction releases energy which is used to create ATP molecules, the energy carrier molecule of cells. The process also releases Carbon Dioxide as a byproduct. www.classof1.com *The Homework solutions from ClassOf1 are intended to help the student understand the approach to solving the problem and not for submitting the same in lieu of your academic submissions for grades.
