Oxygen is a product of respiration by plants that contain chlorophyll and consume carbon dioxide. Oxygen is a reactant in respiration by air-breathing animals.

No it is not a bi product.It is a reactant

It is a byproduct. The byproduct of photosynthesis.

It is the gas Oxygen . CO2 is a rectant

Oxygen is the ultimate electron acceptor in cellular respiration, with water as the byproduct.

The general equation for respiration is Sugars + O2 = CO2 + H2O + energy. So clearly, CO2 is a byproduct of respiration.

The product of photosynthesis is sugar (C6H12O6), and its byproduct is Oxygen. Both of these are used by the plants cellular mitochondria during it's respiration process.

Respiration is basically the opposite of photosynthesis. Respiration uses oxygen and breaks down sugars or carbohydrates for energy and releases CO2 as a byproduct.

Respiration supplies the body with oxygen, energy could be a byproduct because you need oxygen to perform tasks that create energy

Oxygen is a required component of cellular respiration and carbon dioxide is a byproduct. As such, gas exchange must be used to replace carbon dioxide with oxygen, allowing cellular respiration to continue.

Plants use carbon dioxide to "breathe" (but not in true respiration) and release oxygen as the waste byproduct. This is why it is great to have plants in the house. Humans use oxygen and the waste of respiration is the carbon dioxide.

The yeast in beer. It lacks oxygen and so reverts to anaerobic respiration, where the byproduct is alcohol.

False Co2...carbon dioxide (dont read this if u dont want to) there are different forms of respiration, aerobic respiration= oxygen + glucose -> carbon dioxide+ water (+energy) anaerobic respiration=

Oxygen was introduced into the atmosphere as a byproduct of photosynthesis.

Plants and animals rely on cellular respiration to get energy.Cellular respiration requires oxygen. Oxygen is a byproduct of photosynthesis. So, photosynthesis provides oxygen that animals and plants need for cellular respiration

Oxidative respiration is an anabolic process where complex molecules are built up. This is how our bodies produce energy through aerobic metabolism that uses oxygen and has a byproduct of water.

Plants take in carbon dioxide and give off oxygen, so they keep the carbon.

There is only one byproduct. it is O2 gas.

Oxygen is a byproduct of photosynthesis.

In biology, respiration may refer to the process happening at the cellular level where nutrients are converted to energy, or the respiration of the body as a whole. In the latter, oxygen is taken into the body, and carbon dioxide is formed as a byproduct.

Oxygen to Hydrilla plant is available through water, however, it needs O2 for respiration which is radially available as a byproduct of photosynthesis

Anaerobic respiration is a form of respiration that does not use oxygen. It leads to the release of less energy and lactic acid. Carbon dioxide is also a byproduct of anaerobic respiration, which is formed in the Krebs cycle where the carbon sugar is converted into carbon dioxide and water.

Photosynthesis creates oxygen as a byproduct which we humans then inhale, and exhale carbon dioxide which is what the plants "inhale."

Cellular respiration uses O2 gas (oxygen), and has a byproduct or waste product of CO2 gas (carbon dioxide). Photosynthesis uses CO2 (carbon dioxide) gas, and has a byproduct or waste product of O2 gas (oxygen).
