Photosynthesis

  • Photosynthesis produces glucose using sunlight
  • The process that produces 'food' in plants and algae.
  • The food is glucose
  • Photosynthesis occurs in chloroplasts
  • Chloroplasts contain a green subtance called chlorophyll
  • Chlorophyll absorbs sunlight and uses the energy to convert CO2 from the air and water from the soil into glucose
  • Oxygen is also produced as a bi-product
  • Photosynthesis happens in the leaves of all green plants-this is largely what they are for
