Photosynthesis is a process by which phototrophs convert light energy into chemical energy, which is later is used to fuel cellular activities. The chemical energy is stored in the form of sugars, which are created from water and carbon dioxide.
The three events that occur during the process Of photosynthesis are
- Chlorophyll absorbs the light energy and it split the water molecule into oxygen and hydrogen.
- Conversion of light energy into chemical energy
- Formation of carbohydrates by reduction of carbon dioxides.
Plants capture the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through stomata and proceed to the Calvin photosynthesis cycle. Stomata help in the exchange of gases.
