Process of Photosynthesis

How Photosynthesis Works

Photosynthesis is how plants make foods. Energy from the sun is necessary to begin the process (sunlight). Chlorophyll allows plants to absorb energy from light. Water is taken into the plant by the roots and carried to the leaves through the xylem. Carbon dioxide gas(CO2) is taken into the plant through the stomata on the underside of leaves. Plants produce glucose(C6H12O2) for themself and oxygen(O2) for us to breath.
