basics

Chloroplasts are found in green parts of a plant

They convert co2 and water into glucose and oxygen

The equation;

CO2+H2O=glucose + oxygen ( bi-product)

light energy is needed

uses of glucose

uses of glucose;

RESPIRATION

CELLULOSE- to make cell walls

To produce fats and oils

PROTEINS-used to make proteins such as nitrate 

Proteins such as nitrate and magnesuim are needed for proper growth 

definceinies include stunt growth and pale leaves

Glucose can dissolve in water (soluable) so it is stored in the form of STARCH
