What is photosynthesis?

Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to synthesize foods with the help of chlorophyll, carbon dioxide, and water.

What is the purpose of photosynthesis?

The purpose of photosynthesis is to produce food and oxygen, which is essential for life on Earth.

What are the raw materials required for photosynthesis?

The raw materials required for photosynthesis are carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight.

What is the role of chlorophyll in photosynthesis?

Chlorophyll is a pigment in the leaves of plants that absorbs sunlight and uses the energy to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen.

What are the products of photosynthesis?

The products of photosynthesis are glucose and oxygen.

What are the two stages of photosynthesis?

The two stages of photosynthesis are light-dependent reactions and the Calvin cycle.

Where does photosynthesis occur?

Photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplasts of plant cells.

What happens in the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis?

In the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis, light energy is absorbed by chlorophyll and converted into chemical energy in the form of ATP and NADPH.

What is the significance of ATP and NADPH in photosynthesis?

ATP and NADPH are used to power the Calvin cycle, which produces glucose from carbon dioxide and water.

What is the Calvin cycle?

The Calvin cycle is a series of chemical reactions that occur in the chloroplasts of plant cells and convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose.

What factors affect the rate of photosynthesis?

Factors that affect the rate of photosynthesis include light intensity, carbon dioxide concentration, and temperature.

What is the equation for photosynthesis?

The equation for photosynthesis is: 6CO2 + 6H2O + light energy → C6H12O6 + 6O2.

What is the difference between light-dependent reactions and the Calvin cycle?

Light-dependent reactions use light energy to produce chemical energy, while the Calvin cycle uses chemical energy to produce glucose.

How do plants absorb carbon dioxide?

Plants absorb carbon dioxide through small openings on their leaves called stomata.

What is the role of water in photosynthesis?

Water is split in the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis, and the resulting oxygen is released into the atmosphere.
