  • Photosynthesis is an important process by which food is formed.
  • The plants make food using sunlight and water, which provides nourishment to other organisms and themselves.
  • Photosynthesis reaction is as follows :


                                                6CO2 + 12H2O -------->  C6H12O6  + 6O2 + 6H2O
                                  (Carbon dioxide)  + (Water) ---> (Glucose) + (Oxygen) + (Water)
