    Photosynthesis is the production of organic compounds using light energy in lives carrying chlorophyll.

    • 1. What is Photosynthesis-Chemosynthesis? 5 What is Photosynthesis-Chemosynthesis?
    • 2. What is Photosynthesis? What is Photosynthesis? Photosynthesis is the production of organic compounds using light energy in lives carrying chlorophyll. In this way, all of the food-producing live are called photosynthetic organisms. A large part of them consists of plants.
    • 3. What is Photosynthesis? Photosynthesis is the most important feature that distinguishes plants from other living things. In order for photosynthesis to occur, light and heat are essential. That's why no plants can live without light (sun).
    • 4. What is Photosynthesis? The photosynthesis event can be briefly formulated as follows; Solar Energy + Carbon dioxide + Water = Glucose (sugar)
    • 5. What is Photosynthesis? The photosynthesis protects the CO2 and O2 balance of the air. The most important phenomenon in photosynthesis is its ability to convert solar energy into chemical bond energy.
    • 6. What is Chemosynthesis? What is Chemosynthesis? Chemosynthesis is the name given to the conversion of carbon compounds and other molecules into organic compounds. Chemosynthesis takes place around hydrothermal chimneys and methane leaks where sunlight does not reach the sea.
    • 7. What is Chemosynthesis? During the chemosynthesis, bacteria live in the seabed or in animals such as mussels. These bacteria produce hydrogen sulphur and methane chemical bonds of energy required to make glucose from water and carbon dioxide.
    • 8. What is Chemosynthesis? The chemosynthetic formula is: C0 2 + 4H 2 S + 02 -> CH 2 0 + 4S + 3H 2 O
    • 9. What is Chemosynthesis? Since there is no need for light for chemosynthesis, it occurs day and night. Required energy; It is obtained by oxidation of sulfur, iron, hydrogen and nitrogen or methane.
    • 10. Differences Between Chemosynthesis and Photosynthesis Light energy is used. Prokaryotes and eukaryotic organisms can make. Chlorophyll is required. Oxygen is produced only. The energy source is the sun. Photosynthesis Chemosynthesis Chemical energy is being used. Only prokaryotic organisms do. No chlorophyll is required. Oxygen is both produced and consumed. The energy source is inorganic substances such as nitrogen, sulfur, hydrogen, iron.
    • 11. Chemosynthesis and Common Features of Photosynthesis Organic matter is synthesized from inorganic substances. ATP is synthesized. They may materialize in oxygen-free environments. They occur through enzymatic reactions.
