Photosynthesis, the process by which plants convert the sun's energy to glucose, takes place during daylight hours when the plant's leaves are exposed to sunlight. This process only occurs in green plants and in some pro... More »

Photosynthesis is necessary because it forms the basis of the food chain. Photosynthesis, which occurs in green plants and algae, is the process by which sunlight combines with carbon dioxide, water and a chemical called... More »

Photosynthesis is a process that allows plants to harvest energy in sunlight and store it chemically, by producing sugars. Sugars hold energy in their molecular bonds; when the plant breaks down these bonds, energy is re... More »

Chloroplasts in the cells of elodea and other plants perform photosynthesis, converting sunlight into biochemical energy stored as carbohydrates. Both plants and the animals that consume them require carbohydrates to fue... More »

The balanced equation for photosynthesis is: 6CO2 + 6H2O + sunlight energy = C6H12O6 + 6O2 Photosynthesis can be represented using a chemical equation: Carbon dioxide + water + light energy gives a carbohydrate + oxygen. More »
