During photosynthesis, light energy is converted into chemical energy. The energy is stored in carbohydrate molecules including glucose and starch. More »

Respiration occurs in all cells of a plant. It utilizes sugars synthesized from sunlight through the process of photosynthesis into energy used by the plant at all times. More »

Respiration, in which energy is released from carbohydrates for metabolic needs, takes place in plants through a process which can be expressed in a word equation as: glucose + oxygen = energy + carbon dioxide + water. T... More »

Food for a plant is made in its leaves through photosynthesis, a process in which light energy is converted into chemical energy. The product of photosynthesis is a sugar called glucose, which is then used to fuel the pl... More »

The energy required for photosynthesis comes from the sun as light energy; plants transform this light energy into chemical energy, or sugars. Plants perform this energy conversion using light, water, carbon dioxide and ... More »

Autotrophic dinoflagellates create their own food by converting light energy into chemical energy using photosynthesis. Heterotrophic dinoflagellates receive nutrition from processing other complex organic substances. Th... More »

Plants require carbon dioxide, light energy and water to complete photosynthesis. Photosynthesis results in the production of oxygen, water and glucose. Plants use glucose to store energy. More »
