What is photosynthesis? And how is it done. What comes out of it and how is that made?
Question Date: 2019-09-05
Answer 1:

Photosynthesis is the process of harnessing energy from sunlight to generate chemical energy, which can be stored and used later.

Photosynthesis is the way plants get energy. You and me eat food to get energy, but plants capture sunlight and use that to create energy. This creation of the energy from light is called photosynthesis. The plants combine carbon dioxide, water, and light to create energy.
