How photosynthesis works in the carbon cycle
This storyboard does not have a description.
There are many things happening in this field that the eyes can’t see. Carbon is stored in the air, rocks, plants and animals.
Everyone of these plants are going through the process of photosynthesis. They use photosynthesis to grow. Also all these plants are made up of carbon.
These plants are also using cellular respiration. The cellular respiration helps the plants grow through taking in the reactants of carbon dioxide, water and sunlight to make glucose. Glucose and ATP is the energy that the plants use to grow.
Glucose and oxygen are the products of photosynthesis and water and carbon dioxide and the products of cellular respiration.
Glucose, oxygen and water get transferred to animals, than people, and finally into the ground. When the plants and animals die off the glucose settles into the ground and becomes carbon within the fossil fuels.
Humans dig up the fossils fuels and burn them so they can be used as oil. They burn these fossil fuels in factories. When the fossil fuels get burned the carbon goes back into the atmosphere and the cycle starts over again.
