During photosynthesis, chlorophyll absorb light energy that is used to convert carbon dioxide from the air and water from the soil into glucose. Oxygen is released as a by-product. Some glucose is used for respiration, w... More »

In the process of photosynthesis, oxygen is produced from the photolysis of water. The photolysis of water occurs when light is used to renew split water and adenosine triphosphate, also referred to as ATP. When plants c... More »

The light independent reactions of photosynthesis, known as the dark reactions, use ATP and NADPH generated during the light reactions to synthesize sugar precursors. In the most common scenario, called the Calvin Cycle,... More »

The reactants of photosynthesis are water, carbon dioxide and light energy. Plants use these reactants to make the food that is essential for plant growth. More »

Plants produce food in their leaves through photosynthesis, a process that uses chlorophyll to synthesize sustenance through carbon dioxide, sunlight, water and mineral-related nutrients. Chemical energy from photosynthe... More »

Plants require carbon dioxide, light energy and water to complete photosynthesis. Photosynthesis results in the production of oxygen, water and glucose. Plants use glucose to store energy. More »

Photosystem II is the first step of photosynthesis, where the chlorophyll molecule uses light energy to take an electron from a water molecule. This splits the water molecule, generating oxygen and hydrogen ions. The ele... More »
