Photosynthesis

HideShow resource information

Photosynthesis is the chemical reaction occuring in plants in which carbon dioxide and water, in the presence of light and chlorophyll, are converted into glucose and oxygen. 

(Chlorophyll)         

CO2 + water -------> C6H12O6 + oxygen

(Light)           

There are three limiting factors of photosynthesis. These factors affecting the rate of photosynthesis are: light, temperature and carbon dioxide concentration. Changing these three factors to their optimum will increase the rate of photosynthesis.

Up to a point, increasing the light intensity on the plant…
