Cell respiration and photosynthesis are both methods by which cells generate energy. However, each process is distinct and occurs in a different cellular organelle. As your figure shows, aerobic respiration occurs in the mitochondria; photosynthesis in the chloroplast (Figure 7.10B does not show this-probably an earlier figure depicts the "light reaction" of photosynthesis. The Calvin Cycle is the "dark reaction", the process by which the cell "fixes" the CO2)
<br>What the question is asking is for you to compare respiration and photosynthesis:
<br>1. "Specific membrane for electron transport": Where are the proteins required for these reactions found?
<br>a. Respiration: this can be found directly in that ...
