PROBLEM 48P

Write a balanced chemical equation for the photosynthesis reaction in which gaseous carbon dioxide and liquid water react in the presence of chlorophyll to produce aqueous glucose (C6H12O6) and oxygen gas.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 48P

Photosynthesis is the process by which plants, some bacteria and some protistans use the energy from sunlight to produce glucose from carbon dioxide and water. This glucose can be converted into pyruvate which releases adenosine triphosphate (ATP) by cellular respiration. Oxygen is also formed.

Photosynthesis may be summarised by the word equation:

6CO2+6H2O+Δ→C6H12O6+6O2

carbon dioxide + water

glucose + oxygen

The conversion...
