Chlorophyll traps light energy.Chloroplast houses chlorophyll pigments.

Animal cells use organelles (so do plant cells). Cells with organelles are called "eukaryotic" which means these are cells that have a nucleus (which is one of the organelles).

Chloroplasts are energy-converting organelles found in green plant cells

Chloroplasts are energy-converting organelles found in green plant cells.

Mitochondria are not cells, they are parts of cells, belonging to a category called organelles. Animal cells have them. They produce energy.

Organelles in plant cells that function in photosynthesis or storage are called chloroplasts. Chloroplasts allow plants to capture the energy of the sun. Vacuoles are involved in storage of soluble carbohydrates or proteins.

Chloroplasts in plant cells use the energy in light to produce sugar.

Plant cells contain organelles called chloroplasts that form the epicentre of the photosynthetic process. These organelles contain a pigment called chlorophyll that aid in this process. Plants use this process to convert energy absorbed from light to chemical energy which can be used for growth and a variety of other cellular processes. Animals on the other hand, do not have cells containing chloroplasts. They have organelles called mitochondria that produce energy.

No, there are organelles found in plant cells and not in animal cells. But there are no organelles in animal cells that plant cells don't have.

These cells are different in many ways. In simple terms, bacterial cells differ from both plant and animal cells in that they do not have a nucleus (an organelle containing the genetic material (chromosomes/DNA) while both plant and animal cells do. One way that animal cells are different from plant cells is that the metabolic organelles (how they make energy) for animals are called mitochondria which convert chemicals into energy while plants use organelles called choloroplasts which use light to harvest energy.

yes animal cells and plant cells do have organelles

Energy is produced in animal cells by organelles called mitochondria.

Chloroplasts, organelles found in plant cells, capture light energy from the sun.

In organelles called chloroplasts. The chloroplasts are located within the cytoplasm of plant cells.

Plant cells have certain specialized organelles that animal cells do not need. These organelles are the cell wall and chloroplasts.

Photosynthesis occurs in cells called chloroplasts. Chloroplasts are specialized plant cell organelles that capture light energy and uses that in conjunction with water to create ATP and NADPH

yes. organelles or cell parts can be found in plant and animal cells

Mitochondria and chloroplasts are involved in energy tranformation. animal cells: mitochondria plant cells: mitochondria and chloroplasts

plants cells like animal cells have organelles, just in a plant the organelles move slower because the plant is none moving.

The organelles that plant cells have but animal cells do not are: 1. Chloroplast 2. Central Vacuole 3. Cell Wall

Chloroplasts are specialized organelles in plant cells that are responsible for conducting photosynthesis. Chloroplasts capture the energy from sunlight and store it in plant cells.

What two organelles do plant cells have that animal cell do not

the two organelles which are found only in plant cells

The organelles in eukaryotic (plant &animal) cells that converts food into usable energy are the Mitochondrion (plural of Mitochondria)
