Expert Answer

Step 1

Cellular respiration is the set of metabolic processes and reactions that occur inside the living beings’ cells to convert energy from the nutrients into ATP (adenosine triphosphate) and other products.

Photosynthesis is the process of conversion of light energy into chemical energy by the green plants and certain autotrophic organisms. In photosynthesis, light energy is used to convert water and carbon dioxide into oxygen, and glucose.

Step 2

In photosynthesis, glucose (C6H12O6) is the main product, which is formed from the reaction between carbon dioxide and water in the presence of sunlight. Along with glucose, oxygen is also formed as a by-product in the photosynthesis process. Both glucose and oxygen are used by plants during the respiration proce...
