How do green plants get the energy required for photosynthesis?
Plants get their energy by mixing CO2 and water together using the heat of the sun. Photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplasts. Photosynthesis is a process and this process can be described in the following equation:
Carbon dioxide + Water + Sunlight => Glucose (sugar) + Oxygen
This is the balanced equation of photosynthesis, just in case:
12(CO2) + 12(H2O) => 2(C6H12O6) + 6(O2)
