Scientists can trace the steps of a biological process using small amounts of radioactive atoms. These radioactive atoms are followed as they undergo chemical changes and reactions, even when passed from one organism to another.
In this assignment, you will trace the path of a labeled carbon atom through the biological processes of photosynthesis and respiration. The atom will start its journey inside a carbon dioxide molecule and it will end in the air inside a new carbon dioxide molecule. Your mission is to use your knowledge of photosynthesis and respiration to explain what happens to the carbon atom in these processes.
Your presentation should include the following:
Detailed descriptions of what happens to the carbon atom:
during photosynthesis (the light-dependent reactions and the light-independent reactions)
transitioning between photosynthesis and respiration
during cellular respiration or fermentation
An explanation of how the carbon atom is transferred between molecules. Please include descriptions of the molecules involved in each of the processes above and be sure to mention the movement of electrons and energy as the carbon atom moves from one reaction to another.
Complete sentences should be used in all written descriptions and explanations
Illustrations, diagrams, or images that help explain the carbon atom’s journey.
You can create your own images, or use images from websites or other sources.
If you use premade images, you will need to give a reference of the source of that image and create your own unique caption to describe the image.
Your presentation should be detailed and organized, but it can be presented in a variety of ways:
If you have another idea of how you would like to present your explanation, discuss it with your instructor before you begin.

Oh whoops, I didn't mean to post here.
I actually just read most of the assignment. my strong suggestion is to review the chemistry showing the changes in the atoms and molecules for the reactions.
Photosynthesis is a biological process that involves a chemical reaction.
include the molecular structure, electronic configuration and ion exchange in your response
