Carbon dioxide is essential for Photosynthesis

Our Objective

To show that Carbon dioxide is essential for photosynthesis. 


The Theory

Getting energy and nutrition for survival is an essential process for all organisms, including plants, animals, and humans. Organic and inorganic sources play a crucial role in producing energy for their existence and producing food. For example, some inorganic substances are used like Carbon dioxide and water to make foods. Some autotrophic organisms, including green plants and bacteria, convert complex substances into simple materials to produce food materials. These organisms used the bio – catalyst called enzymes to break down the complex substances into simple things.  

Nutrition in autotrophs  

Autotropic organisms up taking the carbon and other energy during  the process of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process where the organisms converting the light energy into chemical energy. Also, the utilize the inorganic Carbon dioxide into organic substance like carbohydrates in the presence of sunlight and chlorophyll.  

Conversion of the inorganic into organic substances 

The process happens during the photosynthesis is,  

  • Chlorophyll absorbs the light energy 
  • The water molecules are separating into Hydrogen and Oxygen and conversion happens from light energy to chemical energy. 
  • Carbon dioxide is reduced into carbohydrates.  

The Carbon dioxide used as a carbon source here and the converted carbohydrates are stored in the form of starch. It is the internal energy source that is used when it is required by the plant. The carbohydrates are providing the energy to the plant.    

Process of Photosynthesis 

Learning Outcomes  

  • Students learn about the photosynthesis. 
  • Students learn about the process of photosynthesis.
  • Students learn about the mechanism of the photosynthesis.
