It is a
process in which the green chlorophyll-containing cells of
the plants synthesize the carbohydrates from CO2
and water in the presence of sunlight.
for the photosynthesis can be written as:
6CO2 + 12H2 O → C6
H12 O6 + 6H2 O + 6O2
products of photosynthesis make the structure of plants.
the products are stored as a food for plant.
accompanied by the evolution of oxygen as a by-product.
