Oxygen is one of the most elements on the earth atmosphere. It is required for the humans to breathe and without it humans might not even be able to survive. It is one of the life saving gases present on the earth. The main composition of water has oxygen molecule which is needed for human beings for drinking. Oxygen is released through various processes on the earth atmosphere. Plants play a very vital role in the formation of oxygen. Production of oxygen is not possible without plants. Plants produce oxygen through a process known as photosynthesis.
Photosynthesis is a process in which plants use the green chlorophyll present in the leaves to prepare food for itself. Plants also use sunlight water and carbon dioxide in the process. In this process of fusion is released as a byproduct.Oxygen released by the process of photosynthesis is released into the atmosphere with the help of the pores present in leaves.
The plants are the main producer of Oxygen gas in the atmosphere. They breathe in carbon dioxide and release of Oxygen which helps in human survival. Without oxygen humans won’t be able to survive on earth.
The chemical events that occur during photosynthesis are complex. The result is that six carbon dioxide molecules and six water molecules become six glucose molecules and six oxygen molecules. The word “photosynthesis” means “making things with light.
The oxygen produced by The plant has to undergo through a cycle known as Oxygen cycle. The oxygen cycle is a biogeochemical cycle in which the oxygen has to go through various states and phases such as oxides, Ions etc.
Oxygen which is a life saving gas is produced by plants. Therefore we should plant more plants and trees so that the oxygen level of earth never gets depleted.
Oxygen from plants when released into the atmosphere as various uses. Before plants are rightly said as life savior and autotrophs as they provide each organism with food and other crucial things to survive.
