Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis is when plants absorb carbon dioxide and water and produce oxygen and glucose

Photosynthesis is an endothermic reaction.

Word equation: Catbon dioxide + water --> oxygen + glucose

Balanced equation: 6CO2 + 6H2O --> 6O2 + C6H12O6

There are 3 factors that affect the rate of photosynthesis:

- Amount of CO2 - Even if there is plenty of light, a plant cannot photosynthesise if there is insufficient carbon dioxide.

- Light intensity - Without enough light, a plant cannot photosynthesise very quickly, even if there is plenty of water and carbon dioxide. Increasing the light intensity will boost the speed of photosynthesis.

- Temperature - If it gets

Great notes!

Just wanting to check, did you mean "Most plants have flat leaves." instead of "Most leaves have flat leaves."?
