Introduction & Difference Between Transpiration & Evaporation !

TRANSPIRATION and EVAPORATION: EXPLAINED INTRODUCTION Transpiration is a physical process that takes place in plants only. It is a process of water evaporation from plants. PLACE OF TRANSPIRATION It occurs in all kinds of plants specially in the terrestrial plants. It occurs mainly at leaves while their stomata are open for the process of photosynthesis. […]

The Process & The Product Of Glycolysis In Cytoplasm !!

GLYCOLYSIS Glycolysis is the first stage of cellular respiration. It is a process of breakdown of glucose into pyruvic acid. Scientist Embden, Meyerhof, & Parnas described different steps of glycolysis. So glycolysis also called EMP pathway. PLACE OF GLYCOLYSIS Glycolysis occurs in cytoplasm. SUBSTRATE Glucose REQUIREMENTS One molecule of glucose. 2ATP. 4ADP. 2NAD. Inorganic phosphate. […]

Introduction of Cellular Respiration & It’s Significance !!

RESPIRATION Respiration is the reverse process of photosynthesis. In the process of respiration it requires the products of photosynthesis and similarly photosynthesis requires the products of respiration. DEFINITION Respiration is the process where energy released from the breakdown of food particles (glucose). PLACE OF CELLULAR RESPIRATION Cellular respiration is a chemical process which happens in […]

Calvin Cycle & The Products of Light Independent Reaction !!

LIGHT INDEPENDENT REACTION OR CALVIN CYCLE Light independent reaction is a series of oxidation -reduction reaction, which combine hydrogen from water with carbon dioxide from atmosphere to form simple organic molecules such as sugar. It is also called as Calvin cycle. CHARACTERS Takes place in the stroma of the chloroplast. It does not require light […]

Light Dependent Reaction,Chlorophyll & Photosynthesis Pigment !!

LIGHT DEPENDENT REACTION The first reaction of photosynthesis requires light energy and is called light dependent reactions. CHARACTERS Requires light. Takes place in the thylakoid. Light strikes chlorophyll. Excites the electrons. INPUT AND OUTPUTS OF LIGHT DEPENDENT REACTION Input Sunlight, water, NADP, ADP & Pi. Output Oxygen, ATP & NADPH2. PHOTOSYNTHETIC PIGMENT Photosynthetic pigments absorb […]

Introduction & Significance of Photosynthesis !!

PHOTOSYNTHESIS The meaning of photosynthesis Photo-light. Synthesis- putting together. What is photosynthesis? Photosynthesis is a physiological process by which green plats trap sun energy and produce carbohydrate (glucose), that store energy. PHOTOSYNTHESIS FORMULA Where does photosynthesis take place? Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplast of higher photosynthetic organism like tree. The process also occurs in […]
