Cell Uses compounds to store or release energy
Adenosine triphosphate atp
Process by plants and other animals to use light energy to make food and convert carbon dioxide into oxygen
Photosynthesis
Principal pigment of plants and other photosynthetic organisms
Chlorophyll
Organelle in cells of plants and some other organisms that capture energy from sunlight and converts it into chemical energy
Chloroplast
Process that does not require oxygen
Anaerobic
Process that require oxygen
Aerobic
Process that releases energy by breaking down glucose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen
Cellular respiration
Process by which cells release energy in the absence of oxygen
Fermentation
Set of reactions in photosynthesis that uses energy from light to produce atp and nadph
