Plants and photosynthesis

HideShow resource information
What is the photosynthesis equation?
Water+Carbon Dioxide--> Oxygen+Glucose
1 of 8
Where is the chlorophyll found?
In the chloroplast located in the top part of the leaf. As they absorb the light.
2 of 8
What is food in the plant used for?
To grow, for photosynthesis, for transport of water and sugar, to repair cells and for stroage of starch.
3 of 8
Why are leaves thin?
So that the distance for CO2 is small for them to travel.
4 of 8
Why do leaves have a large surface area?
To trap the sunlight to make sugar and photosynthesise.
5 of 8
What are the limiting factors for Photosynthesis?
Water, Temperature, Carbon dioxide
6 of 8
Why do leaves have pores?
So gases can pass in and out of the leaf.
7 of 8
What temperature does photosynthesis slows down or even stops?
40 degrees and above.
