Photosynthesis (R2)

       All types of plants need photosynthesis to produce food for their living body. So what is photosynthesis? What is the process of photosynthesis? 

      In this round, I have been studying photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is a process that plants use to create their own food from the sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water. In this process, the sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water were combined together to form Glucose. As you might know that glucose is the main product of photosynthesis, is a sugar that acts as the “food” source for plants. The glucose is then converted into usable chemical energy, ATP, during cellular respiration. The oxygen also formed during photosynthesis, which is necessary for animal life, is essentially a waste product of the photosynthesis process. Almost, all organisms obtain their energy from photosynthetic organisms. For example, if a bird eats a caterpillar, then the bird gets the energy that the caterpillar gets from the plants it eats.

       In my own opinion, photosynthesis was a really interesting topic to study in life science. After learning about photosynthesis I have learned that photosynthesis also plays an important role in our living life on earth.
