What is the function of water in cellular respiration and photosynthesis? Detailed answer please
C6 H12 O6 + O2---> CO2+ 6H2O + energy (ATP) respiration
CO2+ H2O + sunlight energy---> C6 H12 O6+ O2, photosynthesis
hope this helps
btw: i already learn this in science
C6 H12 O6 + O2---> CO2+ H2O + energy (ATP) respiration
made a little mistake
can you explain this in words?
in photosynthesis water is useful for reduction reactions that's why oxygen is released and hydrogen is fixed in the form of carbohydrates and in case of respiration water is useful for oxidation of the photosynthesis end products i.e. Carbohydrates or glucose so hear energy is released among them some amount of energy is stored in the form of ATP which is useful for metabolic reactions and remaining is liberated in the form of heat
