Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are often described in two ways: (1) they are chemically opposite; and (2) they have a relationship to each other. Explain what these two statements mean. Be sure to include the specific substances used and released by each process.

    Photosynthesis takes in Carbon dioxide and produces Oxygen. Cellular Respiration takes in oxygen and produces Carbon Dioxide

    Okay let's look at the basics of photosynthesis: it takes sunlight (energy), water and carbon dioxide to produce glucose and oxygen. this is the chemical formula: \[Energy + 6H_2O+6CO_2 \rightarrow C_6H_{12}O_6+6O_2\]

    Okay now the basics of Cellular respiration: Takes glucose, oxygen to make water carbon dioxide and heat (enegry)

    one relationship to eachother is that they need each other to function

    This is the equation: \[C_6H_{12}O_6 + 6O_2 \rightarrow 6H_2O + 6CO_2 + Energy\]

    So just by looking at the equations we can see that they are opposite. And we can also see that what plants produce, we consume! and what we produce, plants consume! its a beautiful codependent symbiosis
