Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis is a process that plants use to make their own food. Photosynthesis starts when a plant takes in water(H2O), air(CO2), and sunlight. the plant converts the water,air, and sunlight into glucose.After the process of photosynthesis oxygen(O2) is given off by the plant.


The equation for photosynthesis is 6H2O+6CO2+sunlight=C6H12O6+6O2

Also known as 6 hydrogen molecules+6 Carbon Dioxide molecules= 6 carbon molecules, 12 hydrogen molecules, and 6 oxygen molecules.
