What Are the Products of Photosynthesis? What Are the Products of Photosynthesis? Chlorophyll in plant leaves converts carbon dioxide and water into the products glucose and oxygen. Connie Coleman/Getty ImagesWhat is photosynthesis for kids?
In science, photosynthesis is defined as a process wherein the synthesis of compounds is facilitated with the aid of radiant energy, usually in plants, but also in some species of algae and bacteria. While that’s a technically sound definition of the process, it would be a bit harsh on our part to expect you kids to grasp the same.What is produced from photosynthesis and cellular respiration?
Photosynthesis converts carbon dioxide and water into oxygen and glucose. Glucose is used as food by the plant and oxygen is a by-product. Cellular respiration converts oxygen and glucose into water and carbon dioxide. Water and carbon dioxide are by- products and ATP is energy that is transformed from the process.What is the waste product of photosynthesis?
The products of photosynthesis are glucose and oxygen. Did you know that oxygen is actually a waste product of photosynthesis? Although the hydrogen atoms from the water molecules are used in the photosynthesis reactions, the oxygen molecules are released as oxygen gas (O 2).
