Hi, I'm Gerald the grasshopper, and I'm here to tell you about photosynthesis!
Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to synthesize foods from carbon dioxide and water.
The energy is transferred from the sun to the plant, and the photosynthetic reaction takes place in the chloroplasts
The chemical equation for Photosynthesis is Sunlight + 6CO2 + 6H2O = C6H12O6 + 6O2 and the efficiency of photosynthesis is limited by light intensity, carbon dioxide levels, and temperature.
The plants are green because only pigment is being reflected back.
In a Light Dependent Reaction, the light strikes the chlorophyll, giving the energy to start the reaction. The the water splits into separate water and hydrogen molecules. This gets you Oxygen, NADP, and ATP
In a light independent reaction it uses ATP and NADPH from light dependent reactions. The final product is it making high energy sugars.
