What i know

Photosynthesis is the process of plants making oxygen. Plants need sunlight, CO2 and H2O.

During photosynthesis the plant makes its own food called glucose its equation is C6H12O6. The plants take in CO2 and release O2

what do these mean

H2O-water

CO2-carbon dioxide

O2-oxygen

C6H12O6-glucose
