11. Use the picture to the right to help you describe the relationship
between photosynthesis and cellular respiration.

In the process of photosynthesis, carbon dioxide and water

combine in the chloroplast, using the energy from light to make


In the process of cellular respiration, glucose combines with

oxygen in the mitochondria of the cell to produce molecules of

ATP which are used by the cell as energy.

Plants and certain bacteria do photosynthesis AND cellular

respiration. Animals can ONLY do respiration.

12. Name the three processes of aerobic cellular respiration. How many ATP’s does each process produce,
and what is the total ATP produced from one glucose?

3 Processes of Cellular
# ATP produced:
Kreb’s Cycle 2

Electron Transport Chain 32

Total ATP per 1 glucose = 36

13. Name the two stages of photosynthesis and list the starting molecule(s) and ending molecule(s) of

Stages Starting Molecule(s) Product(s)

Water Oxygen
Light Dependent

Light Independent Carbon Dioxide Glucose

14. What is the general chemical equation of photosynthesis?

6CO2 + 6H2O ------> C6H12O6 + 6O2

15. What is the general chemical equation of cellular respiration?

C₆H₁₂O₆ + 6O₂ → 6CO₂ + 6H₂O

16. Compare lactic acid fermentation and alcoholic fermentation by describing what pyruvic acid is
changed in to. Be sure to include what type of organism each one takes place in.

What is pyruvic acid changed into? Organism:

Yeast, some plants, some
Alcoholic Fermentation Alcohol and Carbon Dioxide bacteria

Lactic Acid Animals

Lactic Acid Fermentation

17. When and why does our body use lactic acid fermentation?
WHEN = When there is not enough oxygen.
WHY = To restart glycolysis.
