Photosynthesis and Respiration

Science tuition class in Miracle Learning Centre is fun and enriching. You will learn about the different aspects of Science and how to learn study skills too. If you do not like or understand science, you must definitely attend the science tuition class at Miracle Learning Centre to arouse and reignite your interest. Let us learn about photosynthesis and respiration in this science tuition lesson.

Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants make glucose and oxygen using carbon dioxide, water in the presence of light and chlorophyll. Glucose made is usually changed into starch grains for storage. Photosynthesis takes place only in daytime and in green plants. To respire, grow and reproduce, plants need food. Plants can make their own food by the process of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis takes place in the part of the plant cell containing chloroplasts. These are small structures that contain chlorophyll.

The chemical equation of photosynthesis is –

6CO2 + 6H20 – C6H12O6 + 6O2

Photosynthesis is of two types, oxygenic and anoxygenic photosynthesis. The most common photosynthesis is oxygenic. Some animals are also capable of doing photosynthesis. Like algae and cyanobacteria.

Respiration is the breaking down of glucose into carbon dioxide and water in the presence of oxygen to release energy. Respiration takes place all the time, so plants and animals need a steady supply of oxygen. There are two different types of respiration namely aerobic respiration and anaerobic respiration. Aerobic respiration occurs in the presence of oxygen and anaerobic respiration occurs in the absence of oxygen thus there is lesser energy released compared to aerobic respiration. Anaerobic respiration occurs in muscles when there is not enough oxygen. It is also of process of changing glucose into lactic acid and energy.

Miracle Learning Centre would like to bring you more facts on science tuition concepts and experiments. We hope you have understood this science tuition lesson. Science tuition lessons are created to help students excel and we believe “You are a MIRACLE!” and you can do it too.

Learning any topic subject will feel like a fresh breathe of air when you feel excited, encouraged and motivated by what you are learning. Science is a subject which requires curiosity to know the unknown and questioning the traditional explanations. Only by this comprehensiveness, Science can become fun and interesting. At Miracle Learning Centre, our extraordinary classes of secondary science tuition, primary science tuition, IP science tuition in Singapore, students are taught in a dynamic way so that the natural interest for science develops inside them.
