Photosynthesis begins when a plant's chlorophyll in the chloroplasts capture energy from the sun. Water is taken up from the soil, and carbon dioxide enters the leaves through the ...
Steps of Photosynthesis & Cellular Respiration
Plants are autotrophic organisms, meaning they generate their own food, as opposed to animals, heterotrophs, which need to actively acquire their food from autotrophs or other heterotrophs. Photosynthesis is the process by which plants take in...
Photosynthesis takes place in two stages: light-dependent reactions and the
Calvin cycle (light-independent reactions). Light-dependent reactions, which take
Chloroplasts are the sites of photosynthesis in plants ... The light reactions are
the steps of photosynthesis that convert solar energy to chemical energy.
Here is a summary of the steps
used by plants and other organisms to use solar energy to make chemical energy:
In plants, photosynthesis
usually occurs in the leaves. The light dependent reaction happens when solar energy is captured to make a molecule called ATP (aden... More »

plants, algae and photosynthetic bacteria uses light energy to make sugar and ...
