Mention the major events during photosynthesis

Answers (1)


Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants and certain other organisms transform light energy into chemical energy.
It is a multi-step process that requires sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water as substrates.
Summary of Photosynthesis in equation form
6CO_{2} + 12H_{2}O + Chlorophyll + Sunlight \rightarrow C_{6}H_{12}O_{6} + 6O_{2} + 6H_{2}O
Major Events of Photosynthesis are as follows:
1) Absorption of sunlight by chlorophyll
2) Transfer of electrons
3) Generation of ATP: Conversion of light energy into chemical energy and splitting of water molecule into hydrogen and oxygen.
4) Carbon fixation: Reduction of Carbon dioxide to carbohydrates.
