. Write the balanced chemical equation for the process of photosynthesis
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↑
The balanced chemical equation for the process of photosynthesis is,
6CO2 +12H2O + Sunlight + Chlorophyll ⟶ C6H12O6 + 6H2O + 6O2↑
