INTRODUCTION

The way plants make food through photosynthesis with the help of Water, sunlight, and carbon dioxide

What is Photosynthesis?

Is the process plants use to make food by changing sunlight into chemical energy.

How does it work?

Chlorophyll is the pigment that makes plants green, it captures the suns energy and uses it to make sugars out of the carbon dioxide thats captured from the sunlight. The sugar goes to the plants stems, roots, and leaves to help the plans grow. after the plants use the light to make food they release oxygen that is needed and used by us humans and animals to breathe.

The Stages of Photosynthesis

The three stages if photosynthesis:


-The plant absorbs Sunlight for the first step to start photosynthesis, The Chlorophyll absorbs the light, it allows the chlorophyll to pull electrons from eater.

-Electron Transport and ATP is made, the electrons are taking from the oxygen and are passed down to the electron transport chain. and it creates ATP

-The plants take carbon dioxide that is taken from the air, and water that is in the air and dirt, and its turned into sugar.

Is an organelle that is found only in the plant cell, photosynthesis takes place in the Chloroplast.
