    Photosynthesis is the process in plants and some algae that convert energy from the light to chemical energy, stored in the bonds. The overall reaction is: 6CO2 + 6H2O (+ light energy) → C6H12O6 + 6O2 In order to make sugar plants need light energy, carbon dioxide and water. The products are also water, oxygen in the air and carbohydrates. This is the main source of the O2 humans breathe, and therefore deforestation is a significant concern nowadays. Photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplasts, using

    Sunlight fuels the planet and photosynthesis converts that solar energy into energy that plants transfer into the food chain. Photosynthesis provides plants with sugars and plant proteins that are important for animals as well as for human agriculture. Most people know the general idea behind it, but there are so many complicated processes that make up the entirety of photosynthesis. Different aspects of photosynthesis, the photosystems, and the photosynthetic pathways are still studied today because

    put out into the atmosphere. But there is too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and there needs to be a solution to reduce it. Photosynthesis is the biological conversion of light energy into chemical energy. It occurs in green plants and photosynthetic bacteria through a series of many biochemical reactions(Ensminger,2014). The equation for photosynthesis is 6CO2+6H2O+light energy → C6H1206+6O2. Cellular Respiration is the process by which organisms combine oxygen with food stuff molecules

    Photosynthesis Paper Introduction: The applications for data concerning optimal wavelengths for photosynthesis are vast and as a result much research has been done in the field. In the natural environment discrepancies in wavelength and thus energy naturally occur. This difference in wavelength is dependant on direct and diffuse sources (Endler 1993). It is from the environment, occupied by other plants or neighbours that diffused light occupies different spectral light wavelengths (Endler 1993,

    Introduction: What is photosynthesis, photosynthesis is the process where light energy is converted to chemical energy and storing it in chemical bond of sugar all these reactions take place in structures called chloroplasts. During the process of photosynthesis carbon dioxide, water, and light is consumed to produce glucose and oxygen. Thus bringing us to cellular respiration this is where plants consumes glucose and oxygen and produces carbon dioxide, water, and ATP energy molecules. To capture

    “Photosynthesis is the process” in that plants, a few bacteria, and a few protist use light energy to produce sugar and then converts that sugar using cellular respiration into ATP. Then convert the unworkable light energy from the sun into “usable chemical energy” to use with chlorophyll (Farabee, “Photosynthesis”). When it talks about how NADPH is being reduced, it just means that there is a continued discharged of “electrons from water to” it (Farabee, “Photosynthesis”). Then that “energy is

    Photosynthesis Photosynthesis produces energy in the form of glucose it uses water from the soil, carbon dioxide from the air, and energy from the suns light. Photosynthesis takes place in all plants that contain chlorophyll. Photosynthesis mainly takes place in the palisade mesophyll cell in the leaves of plants. The main reaction is to produce oxygen and glucose, glucose is stored in the form of starch and does not affect osmosis, taking place in the plant. As plants respire both

    Photosynthesis Green plants are producers. This means that they can survive without animals! They can make lots of organic chemicals from a few simple inorganic chemicals. They need simple things like carbon dioxide and water and can make complex things like sugar, starch, fat, and proteins. Plants get their nutrients from the environment. Carbon dioxide comes from the air (unless they are aquatic plants, in which case they get it from the water surrounding them). They get water from

    Introduction: Photosynthesis uses the sun’s energy and uses it to convert carbon dioxide and water into sugar. There were two plants that stayed outside in the sunlight and two plants that were inside only receiving sunlight from the window. If the plants stay outside then they will grow at a faster rate and will be the tallest with most leaves because they receive more sunlight from the sun and have a fresher environment. Methods: Both the plants inside and outside were exposed to sunlight and given
