Chloroplasts, found in plant cells and not animal cells, conduct photosynthesis. There main function is absorbing sunlight and converting it into sugar molecules and ATP/NADPH for energy. Here’s a simple diagram of what a chloroplast looks like. The chloroplasts are double membrane bound organelles and have a system of three membranes: the outer membrane, the… Continue reading An Intro to Photosynthesis

Aerobic respiration takes place in the presence of oxygen, and produces the most ATP in the cycle from one molecule of glucose compared to the others. The chemical formula for glucose going through… Continue reading Cellula(r)espiration
