. Write the balanced chemical equation for the process of photosynthesis


Best Answer

Explanation:

Photosynthesis is a process by which the green parts of plants synthesize food substances - carbohydrates, using carbon dioxide and water in the presence of sunlight.

The oxygen is released as a byproduct at the end of the process.

Photosynthesis takes place mainly in the chloroplasts that are present in the mesophyll cells of leaves with the help of a pigment, chlorophyll.

The chemical equation that represents the process of photosynthesis is given by,

 6CO2 + 12H2O + Sunlight  + Chlorophyll  ⟶  C6H12O6 + 6H2O + 6O2

Final Answer:

The balanced chemical equation for the process of photosynthesis is,

6CO2  +12H2O + Sunlight  + Chlorophyll  ⟶  C6H12O6 + 6H2O + 6O2
