Compare and Contrast Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration
Opposites in photosynthesis and cellular respiration.
Is that photosynthesis is taking in carbon dioxide and water by absorbing energy from the sun and then release oxygen and storing glucose. In cellular respiration glucose and oxygen enters and they are converted into carbon dioxide, water and ATP energy. But they work alike because they both have electron transport chains and similarly ATP.

Different ingredients in photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Is Photosynthesis has carbon dioxide and water. And cellular respiration has glucose and Oxygen. But they both use ATP, NADH, and NADPH. Also they both covert energy to usable energy.

Different place they work in.

Cellular respiration happens in or near the mitochondria. Photosynthesis happens in the chloroplast of a plant. But they both can be performed in plants. And materials produced in one process are used in the other. And they both work in different types of organisms.

The different times they occur

Photosynthesis only happen in daylight while cellular respiration happen 24 hours inside of a human. They both do happen in the daytime and they both occur in living things. They both occur inside of cell in their organisms and help their organisms Out with what they do.

My conclusion is that photosynthesis and cellular respiration are alike in some ways but are mostly different even thought they use or need some of the same materials from each other. Does not make them the same thing. There are many things different between the two of them but without them plants and humans would not be on this earth.
