Photosynthesis

Diana D

How does water enter a plant and get to the leaves?

Water taken up by the roots of a plant is transported through a plant to the leaves and lost into the air

How does CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) enter the leaf?

Plants get CO2 from air through their leaves. The CO2 diffuses through small holes in the underside of the leaf called stomata

Where does photosynthesis occur in the plant?

Photosynthesis occur inside plant cells in small things called chloroplasts

Why is sunlight important to the process of photosynthesis?

The process of photosynthesis occurs when green plants use the energy of light to convert carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates

What is a waste product for the plant and how is it removed from the plant?

Green plants produce carbon dioxide and water as respiratory products. In green plants, the carbon dioxide released during respiration gets utilized during photosynthesis. Oxygen is a by product generated during photosynthesis, and exits through stomata, root cell walls, and other routes

What does the plant do with the sugar it makes?

Plants use sugar for energy at night and as the building blocks for growth

What are the final products of photosynthesis and how are they important to life on this planet?

The final products of photosynthesis are glucose (sugar) and oxygen. The oxygen allows animals and other organisms to breathe and produce energy through cellular respiration. The sugar (food) is also used by other organisms to make energy. Both oxygen and glucose are ingredients in the process of cellular respiration, which all organisms undergo, to make energy.
