What are the similarities and differences between photosynthesis and respiration?
Photosynthesis is the processes by which plants convert carbon dioxide and water, in the presence of sunlight, into glucose and oxygen. The relevant chemical equation for the process can be written as:
`6CO_2 + 6H_2O + sunlight -> C_6H_12O_6 + 6O_2`
Respiration or cellular respiration is the process by which organisms convert glucose to energy....
