Where does the energy for photosynthesis come from and how do plants absorb it. During photosynthesis light energy is absorbed by the chlorophyll in the chloroplasts of the green parts of the plant.
How do leafs adapt to gain the most sunlight possible? Leafs have a large surface area
What are the three limiting factors for photosynthesis? Light (the brighter the light the faster the rate of photo) , temperature(enzymes become denatured at around 40-50 decrees) and carbon dioxide levels
What do plants do with the glucose they make? respiration, convert insoluble starches, produce fats and oils and also produce fats, proteins or cellulose for use in the cell wall.
