Carbon

Carbon

  • All life is based on carbon

  • Carbon is part of proteins, carbohydrates, fats, and other important molecules.


Process

Process

  • Photosynthesis: Autotrophs use energy from the sun, water, and carbon dioxide to produce glucose and release oxygen.

  • Respiration: Autotrophs and

    Heterotrophs must break down

    glucose into a useable form

    of energy (ATP)


Carbon cycle part 1

Carbon Cycle: Part 1

  • 1. Carbon cycle begins with autotrophs

  • 2. Autotrophs produce glucose through photosynthesis.

  • 3. Heterotrophs feed on autotrophs directly or indirectly.

  • 4. Heterotrophs use those carbon molecules for growth and energy


Carbon cycle part 2

Carbon Cycle: Part 2

  • 5. When autotrophs and heterotrophs use the carbon molecules and release energy, carbon dioxide is released and returns to the atmosphere.

  • 6. Carbon dioxide continually cycles as it is located in soil, leaves, roots, oil, coal, and fossils


Carbon cycle 3

Carbon Cycle 3

  • Carbon returns to Earth through respiration, excretion, and decomposition

  • Animals release carbon dioxide when they decompose or respire

  • Burning wood and fuel excretes carbon into the atmosphere

  • Decomposing animals and plants leach carbon into the ground, forming fossil fuels such as coal or oil
