How do cells obtain energy?
Through the midochondrion and chloroplasts
Living organisms obtain energy from carbohydrates and fats. Animal and plant cells differ by means of harnessing energy, but they utilize it in similar ways. Animal cells perform cellular respiration in the mitochondria to obtain energy from glucose (sugar/carbohydrate). Plant cells undergo photosynthesis within an organelle called Chloroplast to convert sunlight into glucose. Plants break the glucose down into energy in their mitochondrion just as animal cells do.
