Botany notes week 3 Chemical Process in the cell Anabolic Process- Solar energy to chemical energy Catabolic process- releasing and storing that energy *When animals or plants go through respiration- it takes energy to break down energy. A loss of energy, to store energy, and then to release energy.* *Energy is broken down into smaller molecules. Plants use free energy to make larger molecules.* Glucose- Plants break glucose down to form starches and lipids. (A transfer with a loss of energy) - Energy from cells comes from the electron transport chain. Oxidative Process- A substance losing electrons (rusting) - Electrons goes to the other molecules, gains electrons and is reduced, which is the movement of energy. Photosynthetically Active Radiation- The range of wavelength plants interact with and get energy from. o Plants cannot use UV rays; it damages their molecules (which is why they have cuticles.) o Plants cannot use Infrared rays; Plants cannot use heat as an energy source. Most Ultraviolet radiation is consumed by the O-zone layer (The good one) and the o-zone layer SUCKS the energy right out of it. The Greenhouse- High energy can penetrate glass, reiterated as infrared or heat. (for example, your car sitting in a parking lot for a long period of time.) Carotenoids- These are the organic pigments that are found in Chloroplasts and Chromoplasts. They do not absorb red, which is why they are the color red. *Chlorophylls A and B absorb light, mainly in the blue (422 to 492nm) and red (647 to 760nm) regions.*
