  • I wonder how a tree like that can make oxygen for us to breath.
  • It's a process call photosynthesis that takes place in the chloroplast.
  • It uses solar energy from the sun, water and carbon dioxide.
  • The equation for this is 6CO2 + 6H2O → C6H12O6 + 6O2.
  • They work together to make glucose and oxygen
  • So when the sun goes down does photo synthesis just stop?
  • This happens in the grana where chlorophyll is stored.
  • No, during the light dependent reaction, energy from sun light is captured and stored in ATP and NADPH.
  • Water molecules split into hydrogen and oxygen and oxygen is released as waste
  • ATP and NADPH and hydrogen then go to the storma
  • The ATP and NAPPH combine with the hydrogen and carbon dioxide to form sugar molecules.
  • I pay attention in class unlike someone.
  • How do you know all of this?
