Given the equation:
6CO2 + 6H2O → C6H12O6 + 6O2 {Under sunlight & Chlorophyll)

The process represented by the above equation is

  • A. proteinsynthesis
  • B. respiration
  • C. photosynthesis
  • D. transpiration
  • E. translocation
Correct Answer: Option C

The given equation is that of photosynthesis which is the use of sunlight and chlorophyll by green plants in order to yield their food. The equation yields sugar and oxygen.

Yes it's true because of the pressense of carbondioxide(CO2) and water(H2O).

NOTE. Photosinthesis can't take place without the presence of CO2 nd H2O

Ans:photosynthesis. photosynthesis z basically defined as d process by which green living organisms mke use of simple inorganic substances(co2 & O2) to synthesis complex organic substances(sugar) in d presence of chlorophyl, mking use of d enery frm sunlight. NB: y did i say green living organisms oda dan jst saying Plants?

is photosynthesis bcz of d presence of h2o and co2 reacting given rise to glucose and o2...
no dought, it photosynthesis: process whereby the sunlight is trap by the protein called photosynthetic reaction centre which contains the chlorophyll with the presence of carbon dioxide and water to manufacture there own, the protein is embeded in an organelle called chloroplast and 3 main factors affect fo2sy106, 1 sunlight 2 carbon dioxide concentration, 3 temperature and many other minor factors.

This is simply photosynthesis, no explanation in JAMB
Photosynthesis occurs mostly in most green plant in which manufactured food is gotten through carbondioxide and water in d presence of sunlight

Yes it is photosynthesis.

From the chemical equation above, water combines with carbon dioxide in the presence of sunlight within the chlorophy|| of leaves to manufacture food (glucose) and oxygen is liberated as by-product. Photosynthesis occurs in all green parts of plants.

Yes it is becoz photosynthesis is defined as the process by which green plant manufacture their food (organic compound) making use of carbondioxide and water in the presence of sunlight
