In order to carry out photosynthesis, green plants need several ..

Every living creature needs food or energy to survive. Some depend on others for food and energy, whiles others can produce their own food.

Plants make their own food, glucose, in a process called photosynthesis. We say that plants can photosynthesise.

Photosynthesis and respiration go hand in hand. The result of photosynthesis is glucose, which is stored as chemical energy in the plant cells.
This stored chemical energy comes from the conversion of inorganic carbon (carbon dioxide) into organic carbon. Respiration releases the stored chemical energy.

Apart from the food they manufacture, plants also need carbon, hydrogen and oxygen to survive. Water absorbed from the soil provides the hydrogen and oxygen. During photosynthesis, carbon and water are used to synthesize food. They also need nitrate to make amino acids (Amino acid an ingredient for making protein). In addition to that, they need magnesium to make chlorophyll.

In this lesson, we shall learn more about how plants manufacture food (photosynthesis), and learn more about the conditions that must be present for this to happen.

This is a useful revision lesson on photosynthesis. Find out all you need to know about plants making their own food with light, water and carbon dioxide

We say that plants can photosynthesise. These are the things that plants need for photosynthesis: These are the things that plants make by photosynthesis: We can show photosynthesis in a word equation, where light energy is shown in brackets because it is not a substance: carbon dioxide + water (+ light energy)glucose + oxygen Plants get carbon dioxide from the air through their leaves, and water from the ground through their roots.
