Question Answer
What are the functions of the root? *To anchor the plant in the ground *To absorb water and minerals from the soil.
What are the functions of the stem? *To hold up the leaves, flowers and fruit. *To carry water and nutients through the plant. *To help plant get sunlight
What are the functions of the leaf? *To produce food and oxygen by the process of photosynthesis. *To allow the exchange of gases.
What are the parts of the leaf? *Root, Stem, Leaf & Flower
What are the functions of the flower? *The sexual reproduction of the plant
What is the chemical formula for photosynthesis? *Carbon dioxide + Water + Energy -->Glucose + Oxygen
Importance of photosynthesis? *It produces food (glucose) needed by both plants and animals. *It produces oxygen gas needed for respiration. *It removes carbon dioxide from the air, helping to reduce the 'greenhouse effect'
What energy conversion takes place during photosynthesis? *Light Energy --> Chemical Energy
What is the name of the part of a plant that is above ground? *The name given is the 'shoot'
What energy is abosorbed and used for photosynthesis? *Chlorophll
What happens during photosynthesis? During photosynthesis, water and carbon dioxide are turned into glucose and oxygen
What form is glucose stored in plants? Glucose is stored by plants in the form of starch
What is photosynthesis? Photosynthesis is a form of energy conversion where light energy is turned into chemical energy
