The mitochondria is where aerobic respiration takes place to create energy for the cell in an animal. In plants, the chloroplasts take the energy from sunlight to provide the energy needed for the cell.

Both mitochondria and chloroplasts are organelles. Mitochondria are used in cellular respiration and chloroplasts are used in photosynthesis. Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are opposite processes. Both are believed to have evolved from a living single celled bacteria that was engulfed by an early form of a plant or animal cell. Therefore, both mitochondria and chloroplasts have their own DNA. Furthermore, they both have free ribosomes. NOTE! they both DO NOT have 2 membranes. chloroplasts have 3 membranes

Chloroplasts are glucose manufacturers. Mitochondria utilize those glucose

There is no definite difference in function, however the necessary catalysts are quite different. Chloroplasts require sunlight to start, whereas mitochondrion do not require light. REVISION: I disagree with the previous answer - the function of a mitochondria and a chloroplast are fundamentally different, indeed nearly opposite in many respects. Chloroplasts are the site of photosynthesis whereby light energy and carbon dioxide are utilized to form sugars. Mitochondria are the site of much of cellular respiration (parts of cellular respiration also occur in the cytoplasm) where oxygen and sugars are broken down to generate energy and carbon dioxide. Plants utilize their chloroplasts to generate sugars wherein the energy of the sun can be stored and later used by their mitochondria and cellular respiration to generate energy.

No, it's found in chloroplasts. (Plant cells only)Mitochondria carry out respiration.It is like the opposite reaction of photosynthesis

I'm not sure if it's accurate to say that the process that takes place in the mitochondria is in fact the opposite of what takes place in the chloroplast. Rather, I would say that the biochemical process of cellular respiration (which partially takes place in the mitochondria) is the opposite of the biochemical process of photosynthesis (which does take place in the chloroplast). In cellular respiration, oxygen is used to breakdown carbohydrates for energy and carbon dioxide is released as a byproduct. In photosynthesis the energy of sunlight is absorbed by the synthesis of carbon dioxide into carbohydrates and oxygen is released as a byproduct. Thus cellular respiration and photosynthesis can be described as opposite processes. However, the process of cellular respiration does not occur exclusively in the mitochondria but occurs in part in the cytoplasm, so I think it's more accurate to say that cellular respiration is the opposite of photosynthesis than mitochondria have the opposite function of chloroplasts.

The exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen between plant organisms and the atmosphere occurs by two processes: cellular respiration and photosynthesis. Cellular respiration is when oxygen and glucose get "breathed in" by the cell, and in turn the cell "breathes out" carbon dioxide, water, and energy. The opposite happens for photosynthesis. As an answer to your question, cellular respiration happens in the mitochondria, and photosynthesis happens in the chloroplasts. Mitochondria and chloroplasts are organelles ("organs of cells") in plant cells.

no it is the opposite, it is a composition reaction.

in a plant its the opposite of photosynthesis + LIGHT 6CO2 + 6H2O = C6H12O6 (glucose) + 6O2 reversed it becomes respiration 6O2 + C6H12O6 = 6CO2 + 6H2O chloroplasts use sunlight to to convert the water and carbon dioxide into glucose and release the by product, Oxygen in respiration Oxygen is taken into the plant and glucose is turned into respiratory energy by Mitochondria.

Answer Choices: A) mitosome B) kinetoplast C) chloroplast D) hydrogenosome E) mitochondrion Answer:C) chloroplast Explanation: Chloroplasts are not related to all the other choices. Mitochondria, kinetoplasts, mitosomes, and hydrogenosomes are similar in that they both deal with cellular respiration, regardless of whether it is aerobic or anaerobic. On the other hand, chloroplasts deal with photosynthesis, a process which is the complete opposite of cellular respiration.

in a way respiration is the opposite of photosynthesis. Because when you look at the formula for each of them one is the reverse of the other. However, photosynthesis is the process of changeing sunlight to energy and respiration is when a cell no longer needs a part of it, or that part gets too old. Say, for example a mitochondria isn't doing it's job, then the cell will break it down and use the remainder if the mitochondria for something else. That is respiration.

Yes. respiration is the opposite reaction of photosynthesis.

Photosynthesis is considered as the opposite of respiration.

Mitochondria and cells replicate at differing rate, so an athlete would have a greater number of mitochondria per cell allowing that individual to produce more energy in the form of ATP. The act of elevated aerobic respiration causes the mitochondria to replicate faster thus more per cell, as well as the opposite happening with a person is lazy.

no chloroplasts do not move in the same direction. in fact, they can move in opposite dierctions. chloroplasts move , but stay within the cell wall.

The opposite of photosynthesis is transpiration and respiration! Hope this helps!

Photosynthesis make glucose and glucose is used by mitochondria. That is the reason

The opposite is cellular respiration, the "combustion" of glucose to obtain energy.

Mainly photosynthesis is opposite. It builds up glucose

respiration... what all is created in photosynthesis is used up in respiration......

No, fermentation is another form of respiration. It occurs when there is no final acceptor for the electrons in the transport chain. The opposite process of cellular respiration is photosynthesis because it builds up the molecules that respiration breaks down.

The end products of photosynthesis are the reactants in respiration. This leads us to the conclusion that photosynthesis and respiration are opposite processes.

The opposite is cellular respiration, more specifically aerobic respiration. This process uses oxidation to release the energy stored in carbohydrates.

Photosynthesis is the process by which plants take in the elements sunlight, water and carbon dioxide to produce food for the producer. The substances released from the caused reaction are oxygen and sugar. Sugar can also be put as the term glucose. Cellular respiration is basically the opposite Cellular respiration can be used by a producer as well as a consumer to make food and energy. In this, the consumer or producer take in both oxygen and glucose, and the substances released from the reaction are carbon dioxide and water. -- These are the formulas for photosynthesis and respiration. Photosynthesis: H2O + Light Energy + CO2 ---> O2 + Carbohydrate (glucose) Respiration: Carbohydrate + O2 ---> H2O + ATP + CO2 -- Note: Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplasts while respiration takes place in the mitochondria and on occasions, the cytoplasm.
