  • Photo Synthesis
    • Equation
      • Carbon Dioxide + Water -------> Glucose + Oxygen
      • 6CO2 + 6H2O -----> C6H12O6 + 6O2
    • How
      • Chloroplasts contain chlorophyll which absorb light energy
      • Chroplasts use the energy from the sun to convert Carbon Dioxide and Water into Glucose
      • Oxygen is a waste product and leaves through the stomata
      • Carbon dioxide enters the leaf through the stomata
      • Water is taken up in the roots and root hair cells by diffusion
    • Rate / Limiting Factors
      • Temperature
      • Light Intensity
      • Concentration of Carbon Dioxide
    • Glucose
      • Converted into starch for storage
      • Used for respiration
      • Make chemicals to grow
    • Leaf adaptions
      • Big surface area for light to be absorbed
      • Lots of chloroplasts and chlorophyll
      • Air spaces so CO2 can get into the leaf
      • Good water supply (veins)
