Tutor description

Both processes have similarities and differences. The similarities are that both processes gather sunlight, separate water molecules, and generate energy outputs. For instance, plants receive sunlight with direct contact with the sun, while solar cells collect rays using photovoltaic (PV) panels. Sunlight energy is immersed when large numbers of chlorophyll molecules acts as the antenna which actually harvest sunlight and start to convert it into a useful form. Both photosynthesis and semiconductor solar cells are significant due to their possibilities of production. Photosynthesis - the process by which plants, use the energy from sunlight to produce sugar, which cellular respiration converts into ATP, the "fuel" used by all living things including human being. The conversion of unusable sunlight energy into most usable chemical energy is associated with the actions of the green wonder pigment chlorophyll.
