CARBON DIOXIDE + WATER -> L I G H T  E N E R G Y-> GLUCOSE + OXYGEN

Limiting factors;

  • TEMPERATURE- cold(photosynthesis decreases) hot(increases)
  • 
  • LIGHT INTENSITY
  • Co2 CONCENTRATION
  • Light energy is absorbed by chlorophyll, a green substance found in chloroplasts in some plant cells and algae
  • Absorbed light energy is used to convert carbon dioxide (from the air) and water (from the soil) into a sugar called glucose
  • Oxygen is released…
