Mitochondria. The mitochondria, AKA the "Powerhouses of the cell," are, as their name suggests, structures that supply energy for the cell. Inside these organelles there are many folded membranes called christae that contain the necessary compounds for aerobic respiration. (For more information, see the linked page).
Photosynthesis Vs. Cellular Respiration Review Complete the following chart to compare these two processes: Photosynthesis Cellular Respiration Overall word equation: Carbon dioxide and water sugar and oxygen Oxygen and sugar water and carbon dioxide Overall chemical equation: 6CO 2 + 6H2O + light --> C 6H12O6 + 6O 2 6O 2 + C 6H12O6--> 6CO 2 ...
There are two organelles in eukaryotic cells that provide enery for the cell, chloroplasts are in plant cells and mitochondria are in animal cells. Mitochondria provide animal cells with energy through cellular respiration.
A process for harnessing energy in which a glucose molecule is broken into two pyruvate molecules in the cytoplasm of a cell. Mitochondrion. A eukaryotic cell organelle in which aerobic cellular respiration occurs. Mitochondrial Matrix.
