How does green plant get glucose it needs?
It takes nutrients from the dirt and also water and then uses photosynthesis to convert it to the type of sugar that it needs
Green plants make the glucose they need in a chemical reaction called photosynthesis. The plant takes in water and carbon dioxide and combines them using the energy from sunlight which it traps with a chemical called chloropyl. Chlorophyl is the green pigment which makes the plants appear green. The plant makes glucose to use for energy and the waste product is oxygen.
hi if you want to know 3 different ways how a plant can use their glucose cause you have come t the right place. the three different ways a plant can use its glucose are: 1. It can use glucose for respiration. This is when the plant releases it's energy. 2. Glucose that is used to make chemicals for growth. 3. Glucose that is turned into starch that is stored up for when the plant…
well there are many effects! One of them is for photosynthesis! Photosynthesis needs sunlight to create glucose (sugar) to the plant cells. Glucose to the plant is like food for us. it is necessary for us to live! Therefore the more sunlight the plant has, the better it is because it can create more "food" (glucose) and makes the plant grow.
In order to grow and be a sucessful little plant the daffodil must both photosynthesise and respire. This is the 'food' of the plant. To photosynthesise the plant needs the reactants of Carbon Dioxide and Water, to make Glucose and Oxygen. To respire the plant needs Glucose and Oxygen to produce Carbon Dioxide and Water and Energy (This is the growing power bit). So foods are Carbon Dioxide, Oxygen, Glucose, Water, Warmth, and Sunlight.
Glucose is soluble in water and starch is insoluble in water. So for storage in a rather wet medium such as a plant cell, glucose is changed to insoluble starch. When the plant needs glucose for respiration or other processes it changes the starch back to soluble glucose for transportation in solution through the phloem system.
Chloroplasts can only be found in cells of a plant and have a green filament called chlorophyll that produces glucose by feeding off the suns rays. This green filament gives the plant its green color. Mitochondria are found in cells of both plants and animals (and yes humans are animals). Their main purpose is supplying the cell with energy, by converting glucose. However, they are colorless.
Photosynthesis can only be done in plant cells and some forms of algae...cells that have plastids (chloroplasts). Photosynthesis has the power to convert the energy of sunlight into an energy-rich organic molecule, glucose. Normally that energy is distributed to the rest of the plant cells in the plant tissues that have no photosynthesizing capability. They break down the glucose to get that energy back and use it to sustain their metabolism (maintain homeostasis). Animals have…
