What part of the plant absorbs the water?
What is Glucose changed into before it is stored in the roots?
What color doesn't the Chloroplasts absorb
Where are fats and oils stored?
What happens when the light gets brighter?
How are roots adapted to their 'function' in Photosynthesis?
Being spread out to absorb from a larger volume of soil, and root hair cells.
What are the advantages of root hair cells?
They have a large surface area to help absorb water quickly
What are the 'Xylem vessels' for?
To allow the water to flow to the leaf
What are mineral salts dissolved in?
Why do plants need nitrates?
To make Protein
What does the carbon dioxide in the air diffuse through?
Stomata (small holes)
Why does the carbon dioxide not need to go far before reaching the cells that need them?
Because leaves are really thin
How does increasing the amount of carbon dioxide effect Photosynthesis?
It speeds it up.
Why do leaves have a big surface area?
To catch as much sunlight as possible
Where does most Photosynthesis happen?
Palisade cells ( the upper surface of the leaves)
What is in the Palisade cells?
What do Chloroplasts contain?
What does increasing the amount of light do?
Makes photosynthesis get faster
Equation for Aerobic respiration
Glucose + oxygen ---> carbon dioxide + water
When does aerobic respiration happen?
All the time
When does Photosynthesis happen?
When there is light
