Cellular Respiration by Mind Map: Cellular Respiration

1. Process where cells make ATP by breaking down organic compounds

1.1. Autotrophs

1.1.1. Heterotrophs

1.1.1.1. Animals that gather energy by feeding off of other orgnaisms

1.1.2. Plants are unicellular organisms that are able to produce their own food.

2. Glycolysis

2.1. Sugar

2.1.1. Pyruvic Acid

2.1.1.1. Aerobic Respiration

2.1.1.1.1. If there is oxygen, pyruvic acids are broken down and NADH is used to make ATP

2.1.1.1.2. Krebs Cycle

2.1.1.2. Fermentation

2.1.1.2.1. Lactic acid fermentation

2.1.1.2.2. Alcoholic fermentation

2.1.1.2.3. Occurs when there is no oxygen present

2.1.1.3. A molecule of glucose that is used to create 2 molecules of pyruvic acid

3. ATP

3.1. ATP stands for adenosine triphospate which is considered the molecular unit of currency.

4. Mitochrondria

4.1. The organelle which this process of nature takes place in

5. Photosynthesis

5.1. Water

5.1.1. Stomata

5.1.1.1. Pores located under the leaves that acts as a gateway for CO2 to enter and oxygen to leave

5.2. Chloroplast

5.2.1. Granum

5.2.1.1. Thylakoid

5.2.1.1.1. Chlorophyll A&B

5.2.2. Organelles that soak up the sun's rays

5.3. Sunlight

5.3.1. Light reactions

5.3.1.1. Light from the sun that is later turned into ATP and NADPH

5.3.2. Utilized to split hydrogen atoms that is then synthesized into energy

5.3.3. Visible spectrum

5.3.3.1. A scale that consist of colors humans are able to perceive

5.4. Complex series of chemical reactions that plants use to convert sunlight into energy

5.5. Calvin cycle

5.5.1. Sometimes referred to as the C3 cycle where intakes of CO2 combined with the ATP created during photosynthesis, is used to manufacture glucose
