During the process of respiration, gases like oxygen are ingested and chemically broken down, or oxidized, to provide energy for the living organism. This process ends with the expulsion of a different gas or byproduct o... More »

Photosynthesis is a process that allows plants to harvest energy in sunlight and store it chemically, by producing sugars. Sugars hold energy in their molecular bonds; when the plant breaks down these bonds, energy is re... More »

In prokaryotic cells, respiration occurs in the cytoplasm; in eukaryotic cells, the process begins in the cytoplasm but a majority of the chemical reactions occur in the mitochondria. Respiration is the process of releas... More »

Photosynthesis is the process by which plants turn light energy into chemical energy. Plants also need carbon dioxide and water along with the light to complete the process. More »
