Chlorophyll and light react with each other during photosynthesis to provide energy for the plant. Plants take in carbon dioxide from the air and water from the soil and convert them into energy. 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 the process by which green plants manufacture their own food. The process takes place in small structures within the plant’s cells called chloroplasts. Photosynthesis evolved about 3 billion years ago, ... More »

Plants use chlorophyll, a green pigment responsible for the color of most plants, to absorb light and produce usable chemical energy through photosynthesis. Carbohydrate molecules are created from water and carbon dioxid... More »

Chlorophyll is the pigment used by plants to absorb energy in a process known as photosynthesis. Chlorophyll is a green pigment that is responsible for a plant's colors. When chlorophyll absorbs sunlight as energy, it be... More »

Chlorophyll is a pigment found in the chloroplasts of plants that absorbs the wavelengths of light required to convert water and carbon dioxide into chemical energy during photosynthesis. Molecules of chlorophyll are arr... More »

Light is not considered matter; it is a type of energy. Both matter and energy can change forms. Matter describes things that have mass, while energy describes a transferable property of objects. More »
