Photosynthesis: carbon dioxide + water -----> glucose +oxygen
6CO2 +6H2 ----> C6H12O6 + 6O2
The process by which plants make food . Light energy is converted to chemical energy.
The rate of photosynthesis is affected by carbon dioxide concentration, light intensity and temperature.
Chlorophyll - absorbs the light energy needed for the reaction (photosynthesis) to take place
