glucose smaller molecules cytoplasm energy mitochondrion carbon dioxide Stage 2 smaller molecules water oxygen energy Photosynthesis Photosynthesis is a process by which green plants and certain bacteria use the energy from the Sun to convert carbon dioxide and water into the simple sugar glucose (C6H12O6) and oxygen. Plants and animals use glucose as a source of energy for all life processes. The process of photosynthesis begins in the leaves where light energy is absorbed by the green pigment chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is found within a plant cell organelle called the chloroplast. The captured light energy is then used to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen. stoma leaf vein stoma spongy cells epidermis guard cells nucleus chloroplast Using the captured light energy, glucose and oxygen are produced inside the chloroplasts through a complex series of chemical reactions. Carbon dioxide enters the leaf through tiny pores called stomata. (Oxygen produced leaves the leaf through the stomata also.) Chloroplasts capture light energy. Water enters the leaf. Cellular Respiration Cellular Respiration is a process by which cells break down glucose to release stored energy. Stage 1 of respiration begins in the cell’s cytoplasm through the break-down of glucose into smaller molecules releasing a small amount of energy.
