Simple guide to Photosynthesis 

View mindmap
  • Photosynthesis
    • Carbon + water --> oxygen + glucose
      • 6CO2 + 6HO2 --> 602 + 6C6H12O6
    • Optimum temperature for photosynthesis is 37°
      • Any hotter and enzymes, which are biological catalysts, are denatured
    • Limiting factors: light, carbon dioxide, temperature
    • Nitrogen  = making leaves
    • Phosphorus  = making roots
    • Magnesium  = chlorophyll
    • Potassium  = making fruits and flowers
    • Plants use glucose for..
      • Respiration to release energy
      • Converted to starch and stored for energy
      • New chemicals such as proteins and  sugars
