Photosynthesis is the process required by plants to produce energy. The
process involves absorbing the sunlight and making energy.
Photosynthesis is a very important process in maintaining the levels of
oxygen and carbon dioxide.
Carbon dioxide + water à glucose + oxygen
Photosynthesis takes place in plants cells in small sub-units called chloroplasts
which contain a small green pigment called chlorophyll.
These green pigments help to absorb light and convert light into energy
which can be used by the plant.
Plants get water from the ground through the roots, and they gain carbon
dioxide from the air as it absorbed through the leaves. The products of
photosynthesis are then released through respiration.
