The process mostly takes place in the chloroplasts
of plant leaf mesophyll cells.
The energy for photosynthesis comes from light.
Light energy is converted to chemical energy by
There are two sets of reactions, light dependent
and light independent.
Photosynthesis is affected by temperature, light
intensity, light wavelength and carbon dioxide level.
All living things depend on the organic molecules
synthesised by plants as a result of photosynthesis.
