PHOTOSYNTHESIS – PEOCESS, FACTORS AND MEANING

PROCESS OF PHOTOSYNTHESIS What is photosynthesis? Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants and certain other organisms transform light energy into chemical energy. During photosynthesis in green plants, light energy is captured and used to convert water, carbon dioxide, and minerals into oxygen and energy-rich organic compounds. A general equation for photosynthesis is: Carbon (IV)Oxide+Water light energy—Glucose+Oxygen chlorophyll 6CO2+6H2O light C6H12O+6O2 chlorophyll The reaction occurs in two main …

MODE OF NUTRITION AND PLANT NUTRITION

MODE OF NUTRITION AND PLANT NUTRITION AUTOTROPHIC NUTRITION    Plants are referred to as autotrophs, i.e. being able to manufacture their food (Organic compound from inorganic materials such as water, carbon dioxide) Autotrophs generally have two modes of nutrition which are chemosynthesis and photosynthesis (holophytic).   HETEROTROPHIC NUTRITION This is a type of nutrition in which …
