chloroplasts vs. mitochondria
mitochondria- carry out cellular respiration and convert chemical energy in foods to ATP for the cell. has two membranes with embedded proteins with two internal compartments. has mitochondiral matrix which contains DNA and ribosomes. inner membrane is highly folded with proteins that make ATP embedded in it.
Chloroplasts- photosynthesis is carried out here. are contained inside the plant cell. internal membranes partition the chlorplast into compartments. has an inner and outer membrane, inner has thinck fluid called stroma which has the DNA and ribosomes of the chloroplast. has interconnected sacs called thylakoids that are stacked like poker chips. each stack is called granum- this is where the solar energy is converted.
