Process of Photosynthesis

Process of Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis starts by the plant by taking in the sun's energy. Then radiant energy hits the plant so it can grow. Chlorophyll takes in the sunlight (radiant energy) and then the water that is in the ground is absorbed by the plants roots. Then the water is carried to the leaves and then through the xylem. Carbon Dioxide goes in the leaves then goes into the stomata onto the leaves. The equation of photosynthesis is CO2+H2O=C6H12O6+O2. http://biology.clc.uc.edu/courses/bio104/photosyn.htm

The explanation of CO2,O2,and C6H12O6.

  • CO2 is Carbon Dioxide.
  • O2 is a superoxide, also known by the obsolete name hyperoxide , is a compound that possesses the superoxide anion with the chemical formula O2.
  • C6H12O6 is Hexoses, Allose, Altrose, Fructose, Galactose, Glucose, L-Glucose Gulose, Idose, Mannose, Psicose, Sorbose, Tagatose, Talose, Inositols, Allo-inositol, D-chiro-inositol.
