This equation simply means that carbon dioxide from the air and water combine
in the ... of sunlight to form sugars; oxygen is released as a by-product of this
reaction. ... How do we know the O2 is derived from H2O during photosynthesis?
Photosynthesis is defined as the formation of carbohydrates in living plants from
... the energy-rich organic products of photosynthesis to CO2 and water in order
to ... To raise the energy of the electrons derived from water (+0.82 volts) to the
level ... and the H+s go into the fluid medium and the oxygen is released into the
... dioxide is obtained from air that enters the leaves through the stomata and
diffuses to the ... The initial process in photosynthesis is the decomposition of
water (H2O) into oxygen, ... from which acids and amino acids, as well as glucose
, are derived. This suggests that fats and proteins are also products of
The name photosynthesis is derived from the Greek words, photo for 'light' and ...
of light to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) into carbohydrates. ...
while air containing carbon dioxide and oxygen enters the plant through the leaf
stomata. An extremely important by-product of photosynthesis is oxygen, on
Thus, during photosynthesis a plant consumes water, carbon dioxide, and light
energy, ... dioxide and water-- both of which are released into the air during
respiration. ... Plants burn these carbohydrates (and other products derived from
the complex process by which carbon dioxide, water, and certain inorganic salts
are converted into ... Growing plants kept the air in their greenhouse fresh and

photosynthesis in most green plants; but there are many exceptions to this. ...
They use it to react carbon dioxide with water to make a sugar called glucose. ...
Oxygen is produced as a by-product. ... Photosynthesis is the chemical change
