About This Chapter
1. Cellular Respiration in Mitochondria
How do cells actually get the energy needed to keep you alive? What does this energy look like? This lesson addresses these questions through an investigation of cellular respiration inside the mitochondria. A summary and quiz are included.
2. Compare & Contrast Breathing & Cellular Respiration
This lesson is on breathing and cellular respiration. Today we'll learn the details of each process and look at key differences and similarities. Then test your knowledge with a short quiz.
3. Organisms that Use Cellular Respiration
This lesson discusses the various ways organisms perform cellular respiration, examining the difference between photosynthetic and non-photosynthetic organisms, as well as how eukaryotes and prokaryotes diverge in their processes of cellular respiration.
4. Process of Cellular Respiration in Bacteria
Bacteria, like all living organisms, needs energy to survive. This lesson will explain how bacteria break down nutrients to generate energy using cellular respiration.
5. Types of Cellular Respiration
In this lesson, you'll learn about the basics of cellular respiration. You'll learn about the similarities and differences between aerobic and anaerobic respiration, which are the two main types of cellular respiration. Then, you can test yourself with a quiz.
6. Cellular Respiration in Yeast
In this lesson, we'll learn about cellular respiration in yeast. Here, we'll cover what yeast is and the two ways that it uses cellular respiration to make energy.
7. Accessory Pigments in Photosynthesis: Definition & Function
In this lesson we will explore what a pigment is and the role of chlorophyll in photosynthesis. We will explore how accessory pigments increase a photosynthetic organism's ability to capture sunlight.
8. Tonoplast: Definition & Function
In the word of plants, we often hear the suffix, 'plast.' From chloroplasts to leucoplasts to amyloplasts, we often associate the suffix plast with plant. Such is the case here, with tonoplasts.
9. Action & Absorption Spectra in Photosynthesis
Learn about the action spectrum in plants; that is, what colors of light they use for photosynthesis. We will then discuss the absorption spectrum; that is, what colors of light they absorb, and whether they use them for photosynthesis or not.
10. Carbon Fixation in Photosynthesis: Definition & Reactions
In this lesson, you will discover what carbon fixation means, when it occurs and what enzyme is involved. The lesson will discuss where the process of carbon fixation falls in photosynthesis as well as give a brief idea of a process by which carbon can be freed from fixation.
11. Thylakoids: Definition & Functions
Inside the leaves of plants exists numerous organelles that work together to collect and create energy. One of the most important places that this occurs is the thylakoid. We will explain what thylakoids are and what they do here.
12. What are the Parts of a Plant Cell?
Plant cells are made up of many different parts, each with a specific job. Working together, they keep a cell healthy and running smoothly. In this lesson, take a closer look at a plant cell and gain an understanding of how each part works.
13. Cellular Respiration in Plants
In this lesson, we'll learn what cellular respiration is and the role it has in plants. We'll cover what is used and made in cellular respiration and why plants need it.
