Compound used by cells to store and release energy
Adenosine triphosphate
Process used by plants and other autotrophs to capture light energy and use it to power chemical reactions
Photosynthesis
Light absorbing molecules used by plants to gather the suns energy
Pigment
Principal pigment of plants and other photosynthetic organisms
Chorophyll
Organelle found in cells of plants that captures energy from sunlight and converts it into chemical energy
Chloroplast
Process that releases energy by breaking down gulcose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen
Cellular respiration
Process that requires oxygen
Aerobic
Process that does not require oxygen
Anaerobic
First set of reactions in cellular respiration
Glycolysis
Second stage of cellular respiration
Kerbs cycle
Process by which cells release energy in the absence of oxygen
Fermentation
Set reactions in photosynthesis that use energy from light to produce ATP and NADPH
Light dependent reactions
Set of reactions in photosynthesis that do not require light
Light independent reactions
