Which of the following correctly shows the reactants and products of photosynthesis? Carbon dioxide + water + energy â†’ oxygen + glucose Oxygen + energy â†’ water + glucose + carbon dioxide + heat Oxygen + water + energy â†’ carbon dioxide + glucose Carbon dioxide + oxygen + water + energy â†’ glucose + heat
Carbon dioxide + Water --(sunlight and chlorophyll)---> Glucose + Oxygen
The equation that represents the process of photosynthesis is: 6CO2+12H2O+light->C6H12O6+6O2+6H2O. Photosynthesis is the process in plants to make their food. This involves the use carbon dioxide to react with water and make sugar or glucose as the main product and oxygen as a by-product. Therefore, the correct answer is the first option.
