Metabolism

The total of all chemical reactions that take place in an organism. Most chemical reactions in an organism require enzymes. An enzyme is a protein that speeds up a chemical reaction.

photosynthesis
Photosynthesis
  • The process of converting light energy into chemical energy and storing that energy in the bonds of a sugar (glucose)
  • Producers – including plants, algae and some bacteria – are photosynthetic
  • Takes place in the chloroplast of a cell
  • carbon dioxide + water → glucose + oxygen

CO2 + H2O → C6H12O6 + O2

Almost all living things depend on sunlight!

cellular respiration
Cellular Respiration

Respiration – the process in which chemical reactions break down food molecules into simpler substances and release stored energy. There are two types of cellular respiration – aerobic and anaerobic.

aerobic respiration
Aerobic Respiration
  • Uses oxygen to release energy from glucose in order to generate a maximum of 38 ATP (adenosine triphosphate)
  • Occurs in both producers and consumers

glucose + oxygen → carbon dioxide + water

anaerobic respiration
Anaerobic Respiration
  • Does not use oxygen to release energy from glucose and only generates 2 ATP. This occurs when there is no oxygen or not enough oxygen for aerobic respiration.
  • Occurs in both producers and consumers.
  • Takes place in the cytoplasm.
  • Products include carbon dioxide, lactic acid and alcohol.
