Energy from the Sun is necessary to begin the process. :

E nergy from the Sun is necessary to begin the process. Besides green plants, some algae and some bacteria can also make their own food.

Radiant energy from the Sun, in the form of light, begins photosynthesis.:

Radiant energy from the Sun, in the form of light, begins photosynthesis. Chlorophyll must also be present

Water is taken into the plant by the roots and carried to the leaves through the xylem .:

Water is taken into the plant by the roots and carried to the leaves through the xylem . H 2 0 H 2 0 H 2 0 Xylem is a series of tubes.

Carbon dioxide gas (CO2) is taken into the plant through the stomata on the underside of leaves.:

Carbon dioxide gas (CO 2 ) is taken into the plant through the stomata on the underside of leaves. H 2 0 H 2 0 H 2 0 CO 2 CO 2 CO 2

Oxygen gas (O2) is released into the atmosphere through the stomata on the under side of leaves.:

Oxygen gas (O 2 ) is released into the atmosphere through the stomata on the under side of leaves. H 2 0 H 2 0 H 2 0 O 2 O 2 O 2

Water vapor is released into the atmosphere through the stomata on the leaves.:

Water vapor is released into the atmosphere through the stomata on the leaves. H 2 0 H 2 0 H 2 0 This process is called transpiration.
