How does matter move and change during photosynthesis?

How does matter move and change during photosynthesis?

Matter movement: Carbon dioxide and water enter into the cell. Matter change: Carbon dioxide and water react resulting in glucose and oxygen. Energy change: The light energy of the sun is converted into chemical energy that is stored in the high energy C-C and C-H bonds of glucose.

How does photosynthesis transform matter?

Photosynthesis, the process by which green plants and certain other organisms transform light energy into chemical energy. During photosynthesis in green plants, light energy is captured and used to convert water, carbon dioxide, and minerals into oxygen and energy-rich organic compounds.

How does matter cycle through a system during photosynthesis?

Photosynthesis has a role in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of organisms. The flow of energy and cycling of matter can be traced. The chemical reaction by which plants produce complex food molecules (sugars) requires an energy input (i.e., from sunlight) to occur.

How does energy move during photosynthesis?

During the process of photosynthesis, light penetrates the cell and passes into the chloroplast. The light energy is intercepted by chlorophyll molecules on the granal stacks. Some of the light energy is converted to chemical energy. During this process, a phosphate is added to a molecule to cause the formation of ATP.

Where does energy for muscle contraction come from?

The energy is derived from adenosine triphosphate (ATP) present in muscles. Muscles tend to contain only limited quantities of ATP. When depleted, ATP needs to be resynthesized from other sources, namely creatine phosphate (CP) and muscle glycogen.

Which type of muscles can you control by thinking?

Skeletal muscles are voluntary muscles, which means you can control what they do.

Which of these muscle Cannot be controlled?

Unlike skeletal muscle, smooth muscle can never be under your control. Cardiac muscle is also an involuntary muscle, found only in the heart.
