Process of Phototsynthesis

By Amanda Rutzen-Period 6

Explanation of Phototsynthesis

Photosynthesis is a process in green plants and certain other organisms by which carbohydrates are synthesized from carbon dioxide and water In green plants, light energy is captured by chlorophyll in the chloroplasts of the leaves and used to convert water, carbon dioxide, and minerals into oxygen.


There are many different compounds in photosynthesis!

For example:

-CO2 which is Carbon Dioxide and its what the plants take in.

-O2 which is Oxygen and thats what the plants release so us humans and other organisms can breathe.

-C6H12O6 which is Glucose and glucose is a simple sugar or also known as the plants food.
