Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis is the process of plants making their own food . The need sun energy , carbon dioxide , and water to produce glucose . The glucose helps the plant grow and not die . CO2 means carbon dioxide , O2 means oxygen and C6H12O6 means Glucose . Chloropyhll is the a green pigment found in the chloroplast . Chloroplast conducts photosynthesis and captures light energy and stores it . Oxygen is the waste the plants give off which helps us breathe .


Photosythesis Equation

6CO2 + 6H2O + sunlight -----> C6H2O6 + 6O2
6CO2 equals Carbon dioxide
6H2O equals Water
C6H12O6 equals Glucose
6O2 equals Oxygen
