Carrie Cunnien SCIE 206 Biology January 20, 2013 IP 2 Abstract Some of the things that will be discussed are how photosynthesis and respiration are linked in order to provide you with energy from the food we eat. The absence of oxygen some cells and organisms can use glycolysis coupled to fermentation to produce energy to your cells. Cells use enzymes as biological catalysts to increase or accelerate the rate of reactions. Energy, Metabolism, and Cells Photosynthesis envelopes everything we need to sustain life whether directly related or indirectly related. Biology involves a great responsibility for the safety and well-being of all inhabitants of the earth. Our daily lives and the comprehension of what it takes to keep the…show more content…
2004). When energy is extracted from carbohydrates by organisms while there is no oxygen present is Fermentation, according to (www.sci.uidaho.edu. 2008). Fermentation is generally used in many ways. 2. In the absence of oxygen some cells and organisms can use glycolysis coupled to fermentation to produce energy from the sugar created by photosynthesis. A. A number of organisms in the nonexistence of oxygen from time to time go through a course of action described as fermentation. Fermentation permits these organisms to create energy under anaerobic conditions according to (www.sci.uidaho.edu. 2008). B. In a biological system energy comes into as light or photons. Through cellular methods including photosynthesis and respiration it is converted into chemical energy. Carbohydrates are developed throughout the infusion of carbon dioxide and hydrogen. Subsequently energy is stored in ATP (adenosine triphosphate). 3. Cells use enzymes as biological catalysts to increase or accelerate the rate of reactions, such as those in photosynthesis or glycolysis. This allows reactions to occur under conditions that sustain life. A. Enzymes boost reaction rates by lessening the quality of energy necessary to form a compound of reactants. Enzymes expedite the chemical reaction in living things. Without them, it would take a long time for food to be digested and our bones and muscles would not work as well.
