Given the equation:
6CO2 + 6H2O → C6H12O6 + 6O2 {Under sunlight & Chlorophyll)
The oxygen given off during the above process is derived from

  • A. sunlight
  • B. chlorophyll
  • C. carbon dioxide
  • D. atmosphere
  • E. water
Correct Answer: Option E

The oxygen given of by plants is from WATER which is split during photolysis(splitting of water by sunlight).

for photosyntsis to place water must be involve,sunlight also, so when the wate moleculs come in contact with light they breaking to lebrate oxyge to atmosphere,which is later used by animals n so othe plant.
6CO2 + 6H2O--->C6H12O6 + 6O2, the oxygen which is the by product is gotten from water via a process called photolysis or photodissociation.

During photsynthesis,water is photolysed,split into Hydroden ion and hydroxonium ion. the hydroxonium ion then react togetyer to release oxygen.
H2O---- OH +H
20H+20H--- 2H20+O2

In an experiment that was carried out ,the oxygen present in the water was radioactive and the oxygen gas that was given off in that experiment was radioactive thus,the oxygen is gotten from water

By using the energy of sunlight, plants can convert
carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates and
oxygen in a process called photosynthesis. As
photosynthesis requires sunlight, this process only
happens during the day. We often like to think of this
as plants `breathing in carbon dioxide and `breathing
out oxygen .

Yap bt when the term pholysis comes in is when light and water react together and when thie is done the oxygen will be evolved
