  • Photosynthesis
    • Photosynthesis produces Glucose
      • Photosynthesis is a series of chemical reactions that uses energy from sunlight to produce food
      • The food it produces is glucose
        • A sugar
      • Photosynthesis happens in the cells in green parts of a plant and some microorgansims
      • Chlorophyll is need for photosynthesis
        • It is a green substance which absorbs sunlight and allows the energy to convert Carbon Dioxide and Water into Glucose
      • Oxygen is a waster product of photosynthesis
      • Carbon Dioxide + water = glucose + oxygen
      • 6CO2 + 6H2O = C6H12O6 + O6
    • Plants use glucose in 3 main ways
      • Respiration
      • Make chemicals for growth
      • Stored as Starch
