Question

Photosynthesis produces glucose (food) whereas cellular respiration produces A) Energy B) Oxygen C) Nutrients D) Carbohydrates

Answer

Now, let me tell you about the remarkable process of cellular respiration. Through this process, the cell produces three essential products. Firstly, we have energy, which is the prime product of cellular respiration, resulting from the breakdown of glucose molecules. Secondly, carbon dioxide is another natural byproduct that is excreted through the cell's metabolic processes. Finally, water is produced as a result of oxygen reacting with the hydrogen ions produced during the electron transport chain. These three products are what makes cellular respiration such a vital process for the cell's survival and growth.
