Photosynthesis is the biological process used by plants to convert light energy into chemical energy. In this process, carbon dioxide and water molecules are converted into simple sugar glucose required by the plants for their growth and development by releasing out the oxygen molecules into the atmosphere.
The entire process of photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplast of the cell and 4 different types of pigments present within the leaves are involved in this process. There are two different types of Photosynthetic Reactions:
- Light Dependent Reaction
- Light Independent Reaction
