Where does photosynthesis occur?
chloroplast
1 of 10
Why do plants need chloroplast?
Chloroplast contains chlorophyll which trap sunlight for photosynthsis
2 of 10
What is the wor equation of photosynthesis?
Carbon Dioxide + Water (energy used by sunlight)->Glucose+ Water
3 of 10
What is the molecular equation?
CO2 + H2O(energy used by sunlight)->C6H12O6 + O2
4 of 10
What type of reaction is photosynthesis?
Endothermic
5 of 10
Why is it described as a Endothermic reaction?
Energy enters from the surrounding, therefore the product of photosynthesis have more energy than the reactants
6 of 10
What is the name of the polymer Glucose makes?
STARCH
7 of 10
How long does starch stay in the chloroplast for?
Until photosynthesis stops
8 of 10
What happens after the starch is broken down into simpler substances?
The simpler substances is moved into the cytoplasm and used to make SUCROSE.
9 of 10
What is sucrose used for in the plant?
Sucrose is transported around the plant to make either:-Starch(storage such as potato)-Other molecules for the plant(such as cellulose,lipids or proteins)-Glucose for respiration(to release energy)
