Photosynthesis And Cellular Respiration Matrix
Pathway of the Reaction
Structure of Mitochondria in Cellular Respiration
The mitochondria is a rod shaped structure and is a double membrane bound organelle.
Cellular Respiration and Photosynthesis
The cycle has to turn six whole times until one glucose is made.
Conditions Affecting Photosynthesis?
Kinds and intensity of light
amount of carbon dioxide and water
types of plants (C4 and CAM plants)
Benefits of Photosynthesis
Makes oxygen for heterotrophs
Removes carbon dioxide from the air
Creates energy for plants (glucose)
Makes energy for us to eat
Creates organic compounds we need
Makes light energy usable
Stage 1: Glycolysis
Glycolysis is the breaking of glucose and it is the first step in cellular respiration.
Reproducing the original four carbon acid enables the cycle to continue.
The end products of the Krebs Cycle (per 1 pyruvic acid):
3 carbon dioxide molecules
1 ATP molecule
4 NADH molecules
1 FADH molecule
Stage 3: Electron Transport Chain
The electron transport chain is the third and final stage of cellular respiration.
