What is the relationship between Photosynthesis heterotrophic metabolism and autotrophic metabolism?
Asked in Biology
What is endergonic metabolism?
Endergonic denotes a process that takes in energy, as opposed to exergonic, which denotes a process that releases energy. So endergonic metabolism would be the stage of metabolism in which energy is taken in. As heterotrophic (do not make our own food in our bodies) animals, we acquire energy from food. Our endergonic stage of metabolism would be consumption, eating food. Plants and many bacteria are autotrophic (make their own food in their bodies) and acquire energy from the sugars made in photosynthesis, so their endergonic stage of metabolism would be photosynthesis.

What is the plant pigment that absorbs sunlight?
Autotrophic (meaning self-providing foods) organisms use photosynthesis as their way of getting energy. The first stage of photosynthesis is when light energy is trapped by the Chlorophyll. The Chlorophyll is located in the Chloroplast, an organelle that is used with photosynthesis. This stage is a light-dependent reaction then precedes into a light-independent reaction where stages are used to make Glucose molecules (energy) which are transferred to make ATP (adenosine triphosphate) which is the actual energy used in cell metabolism (energy requiring usage in the cell).
