we need water for photosynthesis).
What role does chlorophyll play in photosynthesis
2nd are saprophytic plants. These plants feedon decomposing organic material in the soil andgain enough energy from this material that theydon't need to photosynthesize. The organic matterthey utilize is often fungi in the soil. Examplesare coral root orchids
You probably know that plants generate oxygen during photosynthesis
I'l bet you are wondering that because you alreadyknow that plants can make oxygen. You probablyalready know that in photosynthesis, plants takeCO2 from the air, Water(H2O) from their roots, and energy fromthe sun and make sugar(C6H12O6). Whata lot of people don't realize is that when there'slittle or no light, plants do the same thing wedo. The break down the sugar to releaseCO2, water, and energy. This requiresoxygen. The reason is pretty complex, butbasically, electrons get passed around, and oxygenhas to pick them up at the end of the process.
If you measured the amount of oxygen andCO2 dissolved in a lake, how do youthink the daytime levels would compare to thenighttime levels?
Would a plant need oxygen ifit were under lights 24 hours a day?
What do plants need in order to perform photosynthesis
Leaves play an important part in photosynthesis, as they are the first
part of the plant, which is exposed to the light energy from the sun.
Chloroplasts are the sites of photosynthesis in plants
They use the sunlight and the green in their leaves to make sugars from carbon dioxide (which they breathe in through their leaves during the day) and water. This sugar is then used to give the plant energy so that it can grow. This process is called photosynthesis and is the most important process on the planet, as many other plants and animals depend on plants to survive. Most of the energy is used to make new plant material, although some of it is stored by the plant for use during the months when there is less sunlight.
What Do Plants Need to Carry Out Photosynthesis?
our topic right now, namely photosynthesis,is arguably one of the most important chemical reactions occurring on theplanet. Let's see why.
