    Photosynthesisis the process by which plants, some bacteria, and some protistans use the energy from sunlight to produce sugar, whichcellular respirationconverts intoATP, the “fuel” used by all living things. The conversion of unusable sunlight energy into usable chemical energy, is associated with the actions of the green pigmentchlorophyll. Most of the time, the photosynthetic process uses water and releases the oxygen that we absolutely must have to stay alive. Oh yes, we need the food as well!

    We can write the overall reaction of this process as:

    6H2O + 6CO2———-> C6H12O6+ 6O2

    Most of us don’t speak chemicalese, so the above chemical equation translates as:

    six molecules of water plus six molecules of carbon dioxide produce one molecule of sugar plus six molecules of oxygen

    This is the exact answer they’re looking for:

    The roots absorb water and nutrients. Water is carried to the leaf by the xylem in the stem. Carbon dioxide enters the leaf through the stomata. Energy from the sun is captured by chlorophyll in the chloroplasts. The process begins once these three reactants are present. Sunlight provides energy for a series of chemical reactions. Molecules break apart and join with other molecules to form glucose, which is a sugar or food for the plant, and oxygen, which is released into the air.
