What is the equation for photosynthesis?
3 Answers | add yours
Generally, photosynthesis is a chemical process used by plants and other organisms in order to convert light energy derived from the sunlight and converting it to chemical energy that is used as energy source for other cellular activities.
The general equation for the process of photosynthesis is:
Carbon dioxide + water + light -> glucose + oxygen
If we rewrite this equation to using the chemical formula, we have:
`CO_2 + H_2O + light en ergy -> C_6 H_12 O_6 + O_2`
Finally, balancing the equation, we now have:
`6 CO_2 + 6 H_2O + light en ergy -> C_6 H_12 O_6 + 6 O_2`
