What's the difference between Cellular Respiration and Photosynthesis

It is this gradient of protons that fuels the synthesis of ATP. How is this done?

Different types of cells also use ATP for photosynthesis, ..

This further combines with oxygen which produces water (H2O).Every 2 electrons donated by NADH passing through F1 (ATP synthase) creates 1 molecule of ATP.

Photosynthesis is the process employed by plant cells tochange light energy from sunlight into chemical energy, in order to createenergy-rich carbohydrate molecules such as glucose. Cellular respiration is theprocedure of breaking down food molecules to have energy and store it in thetype of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules. Therefore photosynthesis is tochloroplasts as cellular respiration is to mitochondria.

If plants cannot produce enough ATP in the process of photosynthesis to ..

In this process, they pass through the ATP synthase. ATP synthase (also called F1 particle) harnesses this potential energy of the protons, and a process called oxidative phosphorylation takes place.

Cellular respiration is the procedure of oxidising foodmolecules or breaking down chemical bonds of glucose into water and carbondioxide. The energy introduced in the procedure is trapped in the type of ATPand used by various energy consuming routines of the cell. It is a pair ofmetabolic reactions which unlike photosynthesis which takes place in thechloroplast, cellular respiration occurs in the mitochondria.
