Chloroplasts in plants, they convert light energy and store it as sugar (sucrose).

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

Mitochondria are the organelles that converts sugar into energy in form of ATP.

Animal cells use forms of sugar to make energy using the organelles called mitochondria.

Photosynthesis uses light energy to produce chemical energy in the form of sugar.

Muscle cells contain organelles called mitochondria which oxidize sugar in order to produce ATP which is the chemical that provides energy for muscle function.

The plant organelles that make food from sunlight are the chloroplasts. Chloroplasts are found in cell of the plant, and contain the pigment chlorophyll, which convert the solar energy into sugar. This sugar is the food for the plant.Organelles called ____________ capture energy from sunlight and use it to produce food for the cell. The answer is chloroplasts. ;)

Photosynthesis is the process by which light energy is converted into chemical energy stored in sugar.

I'm pretty sure it is the chloroplast

The breakdown of sugar (mainly glucose) is called glycolysis and occurs in the cytoplasm of a cell. The product of glycolysis is pyruvate, which is used to make ATP energy by the Krebs Cycle in the mitochondria.

All of them. Each cell has several chloroplasts that produce the food for the plant.

No, photosynthesis is the absorbtion of CO2, H20 and UV light in order to produce O2 and sugar molecules.

Light energy absorbed by chlorophyll to excite electron to higher state to produce ATP and NADPH which is used in light independent reaction to produce sugar.

In the organelles called mitochondria.

light energy is converted to chemical energy i.e. sunlight is converted to starch during photosynthesis.

Three energy conversions that occur in photosynthesis are the following. Light is converted into chemical energy. Then the energy is used with CO2 to produce sugar. This sugar is then available to be combined with CO2 and being the cycle again.

chloroplasts capture energy from the sun and turn it into chemical energy

Plants produce glucose (a sugar) by using light energy, water and carbon dioxide.

through a process called "photosynthesis"; the process of converting light energy to chemical energy and storing it in the bonds of sugar. The bonds of simple sugar (glucose), is the plant's food.

The sugar that is burned in the cell to produce energy is glucose. Glucose has energy stored in it's chemical bonds and is used in cellular respiration.

No organisms produce "their own energy". Energy that is converted into food (sugar) is either taken from the sun or from other organisms. I think you're hinting at autotrophic plants that "produce their own energy", though they are not producing it-- they transform the light and heat from the sun into useful energy through photosynthesis.

These structures are organelles called chloroplasts. Chloroplasts are the organelles where photosynthesis (making sugar from light) occurs. Chloroplasts are green because they are filled with chlorophyll which is a protein that absorbs light to capture the energy which is then stored in sugars.

Yes, an autotroph is an organism that produces its own food using light energy. Plants take sun energy to produce sugar, making it an autotroph.
