The exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide in plants takes place by two process- Photosynthesis and Respiration. there are some difference between Photosynthesis and Respiration.
|Food is synthesized by plants using carbon dioxide and water in the process of Photosynthesis.||Food is oxidized using oxygen to release energy in the process of Respiration.|
|Photosynthesis takes palace only in Autotrophs.||Respiration takes place in both Autotrophs and Heterotrophs.|
|Photosynthesis takes place only in the cells of green plants that have chloroplasts.||Respiration takes place in the mitochondria of all the cells of a plant.|
|Photosynthesis takes place only during day time.||Respiration takes place during both day and time.|
|In the process of Photosynthesis, carbon dioxide and water required.||In the process of Respiration, glucose and oxygen required.|
|Oxygen is released as a by product in the process of Photosynthesis.||Carbon dioxide and water is released as by product in the process of Respiration.|
|Photosynthesis captures energy and stores it in sugar.||Respiration releases the energy stored in sugars.|
