Photosynthesis by Mind Map: Photosynthesis

1. Limiting Factors

1.1. Light Intesity

1.1.1. low light level, slower rate of photosynthesis

1.2. Availability of Water

1.2.1. dry soil, slower rate of photosynthesis

1.3. Temperature

1.3.1. higher temperature, fatser rate of photosynthesis

1.4. CO2 Concentration

1.4.1. low concentration of CO2, slower rate of photosynthesis

2. Light-Independent Stage

2.1. hydrogen is used to make glucose

3. Light-Dependent Stage

3.1. chlorophyll, light energy splits H2O into hydrogen and oxygen.

4. Adaptions of the Leaf

4.1. Leaves

4.1.1. broad, thin, flat, lie at 90 degree angle

4.2. Stomata

4.2.1. allows gases in, CO2 into chlorplasts

4.3. Palisade Cell

4.3.1. chloroplasts, xylem and phloem

5. Substituted Formula

5.1. 6CO2 + 6H20 ----> C6H1206 + 06

6. Photolysis

7. Formula
