Exploring Photosynthesis in Plants

Explore the fundamental process of photosynthesis in plants.

Photosynthesis is the process that plants use to convert carbon dioxide into sugars. In this process, plants use sunlight to make glucose from carbon dioxide and water. Plants also give off oxygen as a byproduct of this reaction, which humans and other metazoans use to breathe. Quantify the rate of photosynthesis as a function of light intensity and light wavelength.
