Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration are both processes that take place in cells. Photosynthesis uses carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight to make glucose. The glucose is used as food for a plant to make energy. This is where cellular respiration comes in. Cellular respiration uses the end products of photosynthesis to provide energy to the cell. Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration are complementary biochemical reactions. Meaning you cannot have one without the other. These two processes regulate the atmospheric concentration of oxygen and carbon dioxide. By providing cells with energy, they are able to maintain homeostasis and survive. Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration form a cycle, because the products of one reaction make the reactants for the next, and it keeps on going. Photosynthesis creates Oxygen, and oxygen is one of the required reactants of cellular respiration, so one can not exist without the other. Two very different cellular processes work together to maintain homeostasis and keep the cell alive.
How are Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration related?
