Why Do Plants Need Carbon Dioxide?


Plants need carbon dioxide for photosynthesis, which leads to the production of sugars.
Q&A Related to "Why Do Plants Need Carbon Dioxide"
plants do not produce carbon dioxide, they produce oxygen. this is done because of photosynthesis (thats pretty much the reverse of respiration) xxx.
Photosynthesis is a chemical reaction to light that converts carbon dioxide and water into sugar, which the plant uses to grow. For photosynthesis to occur, the plant must have carbon
Because they have pores, called stomata, on the underside of the leaves from which O2 and H2O vapor moves out into the ambient atmosphere and CO2 moves in in a process called transpiration

Carbon dioxide is important to plants because it is part of photosynthesis. They use the carbon dioxide in combination with other minerals to make the sugars that are the food it needs to survive.
