chemical energy


Photosynthesis is the process of utilizing and converting light or solar energy into chemical energy. Sunlight is absorbed by chlorophyll of leaves. Here, light energy is converted into chemical energy and is stored as ATP molecules. This energy is used by plants for the life processes. The excess of energy is stored in the plants as complex sugar or glucose molecules.
