  • Photosynthesis and digestion key terms
    • Digestion
      • Ingestion
        • Taking food into the body
      • Digestion
        • Breaking down food so that it can be used
      • Absorption
        • Taking nutrients
      • Assimilation
        • Using the nutrients
      • Egestion
        • Removal of indigestible material
      • Enzyme
        • An enzyme is a biological catalyst which speeds up the rate of reaction while hot, being used up itself (salivary anylase)
      • Anylase
        • Amylase is an enzyme that breaks down starch, converting it into sugars.
    • Photosynthesis
      • Plant method of making food.
      • Chlorophyll
        • The green pigment inside the chloroplasts absorb the sunlight for photosynthesis
      • Transpiration
        • Evaporation of water from leaves.
      • NPK
        • Nitrogen, phosphorous, patassium
