How Photosynthesis Works

The water is absorbed by the roots and is carried to the leaves by the xylem, and carbon dioxide is obtained from air that enters the leaves through the stomata and diffuses to the cells containing chlorophyll.

Facts about Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis provides us with most of the oxygen we need in order to breathe. We in turn, exhale the carbon dioxide needed by plants. Plants need human life because we rely on them as a source of food for ourselves and for the animals that we eat.

How photosynthesiss helps our planet

When plants do photosynthesis, they produce food for themselves, which is good, but they also give off oxygen as a byproduct, which animals need to survive.

Paragraph about photosynthesis

The process by which plants manufacture their own food from sunlight,water,and co2. The green plants produce organic matter by drawing nutrients and water from the soil, carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and sun's radiant energy. The process of photosynthesis is made possible by the presence of a green pigment called chlorophyll in the leaves of the plants. The green plants are the primary produc­ers and are called autotrophs.
