  1. Plants perform photosynthesis( co2 to c6h12o6) they also perform cellular respiration ( c6h12o6 to co2). They also can decompose ( out if co2)

  2. They perform photosynthesis to gain carbon, cellular respiration to release carbon, and they can decompose as well to release carbon

  3. Plants are part of the carbon cycle because they preform photosynthesis which is co2 to c6h12o6 . Also they preform cellular respiration which is c6h12o6 to co2.

  4. Plants are producers, so they make their own food. They make their food through photosynthesis. And to use that energy, they also perform cellular respiration. They can also pass on the carbon through the food chain when they are eaten by animals. Therefore, contributing to the carbon cycle. Photosynthesis: 6CO2+6H2O—>C6H12O6+6O2
    Respiration: C6H12O6+6O2—>6CO2+6H2O

  5. They use photosynthesis to turn co2 into c6h12o6 and then they use cellular respiration which is the exact opposite.

  6. Plants perform photosynthesis they also perform cellular respiration. And the plants also can decompose out of co2. Photosynthesis(co2 to c6h12o6) and cellular respiration(c6h12o6 to co2

  7. Plants do photosynthesis (CO2 to C6H12O6) and cellular respiration (C6H12O6 to CO2).

  8. because when animals eat the plants, the energy from the plant is transferred to the animal. Then, when the animals break down the food to release energy, carbon is returned to the air as carbon dioxide or CO2

  9. Plants perform photosynthesis. The formula is co2 to c6h12o6. They perform cellular respiration as well which is c6h 12o6 to co2

  10. Cellular respiration: Glucose + Oxygen → Carbon dioxide + Water + Energy (ATP)

    C6H12O6 + 6O2 → 6CO2 + 6H2O + 2900 KJ
    Photosynthesis: Carbon Dioxide + Water + Sunlight → Glucose + Oxygen

    6CO2 + 12H2O + Light Energy → C6H12O6 + 6O2
    Decomposition: CO2

  11. Plants perform photosynthesis which creates oxygen (6 CO2 + 6 H2O -> C6H12O2 + 6O2)
    Cellular Respiration witch releases CO2 (C6H12O6 + 6O2 —-> 6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy)
    Decomposition which breaks down organisms (AB –> A + B)

  12. Plants are part of the carbon cycle because they do photosynthesis which is co2 to c6h12o6 . Also they do cellular respiration which is c6h12o6 to co2.

  13. plants can preform photosynthesis to form C6H12O6
    They also can do cellular respiration to transfer energy

  14. Plants use photosynthesis to get their energy, which uses sunlight carbon dioxide and water to make atp. They also do cellular respiration, which uses oxygen to get energy. They also decompose which releases carbon dioxide.
