Explain how photosynthesis and cellular respiration are a cycle.3.

Ok, ok, told you that ATP drives the cellular processes, so what do cells do with the NADH and FADH? Simple, they turn it into ATP in the second step of aerobic respiration, the electron transport chain.

A comparison between Photosynthesis and Respiration:

CellularRespiration: breaking down sugar in the presence of oxygen(aerobic).

Be able to write the overall equation forCellular respiration.

Citrate is then repeatedly oxidized (loses electrons in the form of hydrogen in NADH and FADH, which will be used in the next step) until only the beginning four-carbon molecule and 2CO is left -- the waste product of aerobic respiration.

Similarities between Photosynthesis and Aerobic Respiration

Thus, anaerobic respiration is in essence glycolysis taking place multiple times in an effort to produce enough ATP to sustain the cell without the consumption of oxygen.

Cellular Respiration - Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration

Plants make their own food by photosynthesis. Carbon dioxide and water react together in the presence of light and chlorophyll to make glucose and oxygen. The glucose is converted into starch, fats and oils for storage. It is used to make cellulose for cell walls, and proteins for growth and repair. It is also used by the plant to release energy by respiration.

Photosynthesis, Aerobic Respiration, and the ATP ..

Hence, the processes recycle the chemical elements necessary to life between them by using the by-products of photosynthesis as the essential ingredients for the functioning of cellular respiration and vice versa, as can be seen in Equation 2 (Kimball, 2012).

In the course of cellular respiration, energy is released through the breakdown of organic molecules into smaller units, a phenomenon which is described by the term ‘catabolic reaction.’ Cellular respiration can refer to two such catabolic processes, fermentation or aerobic respiration.
