Photosynthesis And Respiration


PHOTOSYNTHESIS  It is an anabolic process. Carbohydrates are synthesized. Light energy is stored in the form of glucose or chemical energy. The amount of CO2 in the air decreases during photosynthesis. It takes place only in chlorophyllous cells. It occurs only in the light. The dry weight of the plant increases. Photophosphorylation occurs. 6CO2+12H2O——–> + … Read more
