in order for a plant to grow and survive it has to carry out photosynthesis. This process takes place in the leaves and the sub-stroller structures called chloroplasts . Within these structures is a pigment called chlorophyll . Chlorophyll absorbs light . This collects little packets of energy and transforms it into carbon dioxide + water -- light = glucose + oxygen .
6c02 + 6h20----- light c6h1206 + 602
Whenever energy from the surroundings is used to help a reaction take place like this is called an endothermic reaction . This shows that energy from the enviroment is transferred to chloroplasts by light . The carbon dioxide diffuses into the leaves through the stomata…
