4.2 Overall Equation of Photosynthesis

Definition : Photosynthesis is the intracellular anabolic process, characteristic of the green cells of plants in which carbohydrates are synthesized from carbon dioxide and water in the presence of light and chlorophyll. In this process, light energy is converted into chemical energy and stored in carbohydrate molecules, while oxygen is liberated.

The overall process of photosynthesis is represented by the following general chemical equation.
