Cell Energy Flashcards

Purpose of photosynthesis

To make food for plants in the form of glucose

Purpose of cell respiration

To break down food (sugars) to get energy (ATP)

What are the reactants to photosynthesis?

H2O + CO2 + light

What are the products of photosynthesis?

C6H12O6 + O2 (photosynthesis)

What are the reactants for cell respiration?

C6H12O6 + O2 (cell respiration)
