What is the differences between cellular respiration and photosynthesis?

One difference of photosynthesis and respiration is that their process is being reversed. In photosynthesis, carbon dioxide and water is yielded to glucose or also known as sugar and oxygen while in respiration, it is the other way around. Sugar and oxygen is yielded to carbon dioxide and water.

What are two differences between cellular respiration and photosynthesis?

Photosynthesis vs. Cellular respiration. Photosynthesis and cellular respiration are complementary processes by which living things obtain needed substances. They both consume and create the same substances (water, glucose, oxygen, and carbon dioxide) but in different ways.

Why is cellular respiration and photosynthesis different?

Photosynthesis makes the glucose that is used in cellular respiration to make ATP. While photosynthesis requires carbon dioxide and releases oxygen, cellular respiration requires oxygen and releases carbon dioxide. It is the released oxygen that is used by us and most other organisms for cellular respiration.
