Photosynthesis is the process of converting energy in which the solar energy is converted into the form of light which is used in the production of carbohydrate molecules.
Here are few solved problems on Photosynthesis.
Problem 1: During Photosynthesis process all green plants synthesis glucose (C6H12O6) and oxygen from carbon dioxide and water. Find out how many kilograms of oxygen is produced from 330kg of carbon dioxide?
By substituting the above-mentioned values in the balanced equation of photosynthesis we get
6CO2(g) + 6H2O(l) → C6H12O6(s) + 6O2(g)
In our equation 1 to 1-mole ratio of CO2 to O2
Problem 2: Write the complete balanced reaction for Photosynthesis both in symbol and word equation.
The balanced reaction for photosynthesis in word form is
Carbon dioxide + Water → Glucose + oxygen.
The balanced reaction for photosynthesis in symbol form is
6CO2 + 6H2O → C6H12O6 + 6O2.
