Organisms that use light for the energy to synthesize organic compounds are called photosynthetic autotrophs, such as green plants and some algae. Heterotroph - an organism that requires organic substrates to get its carbon for growth and development. A heterotroph is known as a consumer in the food chain. 3. Photosynthesis is a process that happens in the leaves of a plant. Photosynthesis is the conversion of light energy into chemical energy. The energy from sunlight turns carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen. This feeds the plants and is its’ main source of energy. 4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
