Photosynthesis and Respiration Poster



This is a very complex process and involves chemical reactions during which oxygen is made use of for converting glucose into carbon dioxide and H2O. In this process energy is generated in the form of ATP, which are the carriers of energy. The start and end of aerobic respiration is usually the same if the glucose is to be broken down. Although burning is a type of aerobic process, the energy released in it is heat. But in aerobic respiration the release of energy is done in controlled way and hence very less energy is wasted in the form of heat. Most of the energy thus released is utilized by cells for growth and other activities.

Sunlight is the main source for photosyntheis. Photosynthesis takes place primarily in the leaves. The leaves are coated with plant lipids to repel the water. Photosynthesis take place in the chloroplast. The Chlorolplast is made up of thylakoids, stoma and a inner and outer membrane. Chlorophyll is built into the membranes of the thylakoids. Chlorphylll is what makes the plants green. Leaves absorb sunlight, producing oxygen and water. Water molecules are split into oxygen and hydrogen molecules. Hydrogen binds to the reactant (synthesis enzyme) creating ATP. Carbon Dioxide, Water and light energy turn into a sugar and oxygen which is glucose. Glucose is consumed by animals.
