1. Flow of Energy/Matter through the Environment

1.1. Photosynthesis (Starts the flow of energy)

1.1.1. Point Form

1.1.1.1. REACTANTS Carbon Dioxide and Water under CONDITIONS of Light Energy and chlorophyll results in PRODUCTS of glucose and oxygen

1.1.2. Equation

1.1.2.1. Word

1.1.2.1.1. Carbon dioxide + water-(Sunlight and chlorophyl)-> glucose +oxygen

1.1.2.2. Chemical

1.1.2.2.1. 6CO2 + 12H2O -(Sunlight and chlorophyl)-> C6H12O6 + 6O2 + 6H2O

1.1.2.2.2. Metabolic Reaction

1.1.3. Paragraph Form

1.1.3.1. a process whereby light energy is trapped by chlorophyll and converted into chemical energy which is then utilized to manufacture carbohydrates/glucose from raw materials such as carbon dioxide and water. Oxygen is released as a by-product

1.1.4. Performing Starch test

1.1.4.1. Place leaf in boiling water to kill the cell and tear open the cell membranes so the iodine stain can easily enter the cells. Place leaf in boiling alcohol to remove the green chlorophyll so the final results can be clearly seen Dip leaf into warm water to remove the alcohol so the iodine stain can penetrate the leaf. Cover leaf with iodine solution to test for the presence of starch. Those parts of the leaf that stain blue-black contain starch. Those parts that are yellow-brown (the colour of the iodine stain) do not have starch.

1.2. Cycles

1.2.1. Food Chains

1.2.1.1. Is a series of organisms through which energy is trasnferred in material form
