Photosynthesis

And the importance of it

Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis is very valuable. It is one of the most important energy transformations (radiant to chemical energy) on Earth, because it sustains the ecological food chain it keeps animals and humans alive If you look at the food chain to the right, it shows that the plant reasource is at the bottom. Without photosynthesis we wouldn't have oxygen provided to us by plants, and animals (herbivores) wouldn't have food. A tree is basically a big plant, that provides enough oxygen for a family of 4. The more trees we can plant, more oxygen for our community will be provided us.

What is phtosynthesis?

Photosynthesis is a process that only plants go through to make glucose. Photosynthesis: 6H2O + 6 CO2 ~ radiant energy ~ C6H12O6 + 6 O2. More specifically, for a plant to make glucose, it obsorbes water (H2O), and takes in carbon dioxed (CO2), these are called racants. The radiant energy transforms the racants into glucose which is also called products. Then the glucose takes out 6 O2 giving us oxygen to breathe.

Chloroplasts

Chloroplasts an important part of a plant. In the picture to the right, it shows what is inside of chloroplasts. The most important thing inside chloroplasts is stoma. Stoma is an opening that allows gas exchange. It lets in Carbon Dioxide and releases Oxygen. This process is how we get oxygen. The only way that this process can go through is if plants feed off of glucose.
