What is photosynthesis?
Photosynthesis is the process that plants use to make glucose. During this chemical reaction, light energy is used to combine carbon dioxide and water.
1 of 5
What is the word equation for photosynthesis?
Carbon Dioxide + Water -energy from light and cholorphyll---> Glucose + Oxygen
2 of 5
What is an adaptation for photosynthesis?
Photosynthesis takes place in cells that are mostly found in leaves. Many leaves have a large surface area to capture as much light as possible for photosynthesis.
3 of 5
What are some limiting factors of photosynthesis?
Low temperature, dim light and low carbon dioxide concentration all limit the rate of photosynthesis.
4 of 5
How can you measure the effects of the rate of photosynthesis?
By measuring the rate at which oxygen is given off by a piece of pondweed.
