Unformatted text preview: Plants are bes t k nown for their ability to perform photos y nthes is , the proc es s by whic h light energy is c onv erted to c hemic al energy in the form of s ugars .
But plants don’t jus t mak e s ugars ; they us e them, too. Lik e animals , plants mus t break s ugars down to fuel c ellular work . In this ac tiv ity , y ou will c omplete
a c onc ept map s howing the interrelatednes s of s ugar produc tion and s ugar break down in a plant c ell. Part A Photosynthesis and respiration in plants
Drag the labels from the left to their correct locations in the concept m ap on the right. Not all labels will be used. Hin t 1. What products are generated in chloroplasts?
Chloroplas ts are the s ites of photos y nthes is .

A mutually dependent relations hip ex is ts between c hloroplas ts and mitoc hondria in the plant c ell. Photos y nthes is , whic h oc c urs in c hloroplas ts ,
generates the s ugars and ox y gen gas that are us ed in mitoc hondria for c ellular res piration. Cellular res piration generates c arbon diox ide, whic h in
turn is us ed as a c arbon s ourc e for the s y nthes is of s ugars during photos y nthes is . Cellular res piration als o generates ATP and water, whic h are
us ed in v arious c hemic al reac tions in the plant c ell. Chapter 10 Question 2 Part A
Whic h of the following are produc ts of the light reac tions of photos y nthes is that are utiliz ed in the Calv in c y c le?
