Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants, algae, and some bacteria convert sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water into glucose (a sugar) and oxygen. It occurs in the chloroplasts of plant cells, specifically in the chlorophyll pigment, which gives plants their green color.
During photosynthesis, plants capture sunlight energy through specialized molecules called pigments. This energy is used to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose, a form of stored energy that plants can use for growth, development, and reproduction. Oxygen is released as a byproduct into the atmosphere, which is vital for supporting life on Earth.
