Part 1: Fill out the following table to compare and contrast Photosynthesis and Aerobic Cellular Respiration.
Aerobic Cellular Respiration
Full balanced equation
Is this reaction endergonic or exergonic? State which one it is.
Energy source used
Cell organelles involved in the reaction
Role of ATP in the reaction
Part 2: After completing the table you will have a basic understanding of these two complementary metabolic processes. Using what you have learned, and additional reference information, answer the following problems.
What types of organisms can use Photosynthesis to produce glucose? Provide exs.
What types of organisms can use Aerobic Cellular Respiration to break down glucose to produce ATP? Provide exs.
If oxygen is lacking, how might cells meet their energy needs through fermentation? describe and give some exs of cells that can do this.
Both reactions are exs of complex metabolic pathways, consisting of many linked reactions. Briefly, describe the role of enzymes in chemical reactions and metabolic pathways.
Be sure to list and cite in APA, all references used to prepare both parts of this IP assignment.
