photosynthesis produces energy in the form of glucose, while cellular respiration breaks down the glucose into a smaller form of that energy. photosynthesis creates food for the plant and cellular respiration creates air and energy for the organism to use.

the equation for photosynthesis
images.jpeg photosynthesis and cellular respiration require each others products, they obtain the reverse equation of each other. photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplasts and requires chlorophyll, while cellular respiration occurs in the mitochondrion.

For the process of photosynthesis to occur, carbon dioxide is needed. to obtain that carbon dioxide you must carry out cellular respiration. For cellular respiration to occur, oxygen is needed. to obtain that oxygen you must carry out photosynthesis.
