What is Photosynthesis
Sun is the resource of all energies. Any living creatures can not use the luminous energy of the sun directly. Only algaes, bacterias and the plants which has the special chlorophyllose pigments can keep the solar energy and turn it into energy which cells get benefits. Photosynthesis is a chemical process through which plants, some bacteria and algae, produce glucose and oxygen from carbon dioxide and water, using only light as a source of energy.
“Leaf” is the chemical factory of the plant
- Leafs have the characteristics of their stems.
- Flat shape of leafs supplies the cells to be close to the external environment, thus it eases gas exchange for the plants.
- Leafs have many pores which ease gas exchange.
- Leaf breadth increases the overheating caused of the solar.
How Does Photosynthesis Occur
- Photosynthesis occurs when green plants harness the energy in sunlight and convert it to chemical energy in the form of sugars.
- Photosynthesis occurs in all green plants and a few other, simple organisms, such as algae and some bacteria.
- Photosynthetic organisms typically feature small structures called chloroplasts in their cells.
Requisites for Photosynthesis
Taken from the Outside
- Mineral Salts
- Chlorophyl brings about Photosynthesis
- Photosynthesis begins with solar absorption of a chlorophyl molecule
Which Factors Affect Photosynthesis ?
- Number of chloroplast
- Quantity of water
- Leaf breadth
- Structures and the number of Stomas
- Cuticula thickness
- Quantity of enzyme
- Quantitiy of Carbondioxyde
- Light severity
- Mineral Salts
