8.9 Consider the reactions:
Why it is more appropriate to write these reactions as :
Also, suggest a technique to investigate the path of the above (a) and (b) redox reactions.
(a) In the photosynthesis process-
step 1- the liberation of and -->
step-2 The produced in above reduces the into glucose and water
So, the final net reaction is
It is more appropriate to write the reaction as above because water molecule also produced in photosynthesis reaction.
The path of reaction can be investigated by using the radioactive instead of
(the final net reaction)
Dioxygen is produced from both steps, one from the decomposition of ozone () and other is from the reaction of hydrogen peroxide with(O)
