How many carbon hydrogen and oxygen molecules is photosynthesis composed of?
None, because 'photosynthesis' is not a molecular compound. It's a biochemical pathsway of many consecutive reactions resulting in the forming of sugar C6H12O6.
(b.t.w. this is 6 C atoms, not molecules, and 12 H atoms and 6 O atoms in 1 (one) molecule of hexose sugar)
At least six this is because photosynthesis uses Carbon Dioxide, Water and Sunlight, to produce glucose. A glucose molecule is made of 6 carbon, 6 oxygen, and 12 hydrogen atoms. Since carbon dioxide is the only molecule in photosynthesis containing carbon atoms, and it only contains one per molecule, you would need a minimum of six molecules of it combined with six molecules of water in order to produce glucose. (with an extra 12 oxygen…
Organic molecules contain a carbon-hydrogen bond, whereas inorganic molecules do not. Organic molecules Compound=Molecules Chemicals of life Compounds that are composed of more than one type of element, Found in all living organisms Produced by living organism Any molecules that has carbon in it: With the exception of: Carbon dioxide, carbon minx Carbonates. Jack, hope that helps :)
Lipids- Molecules mostly made up of Carbon and Hydrogen atoms that makes fats, oils, and wax Carbohydrates-Compound composed carbon, hydrogen, oxygen in a ratio of 1:2 Carbon and Hydrogen atoms Proteins- are made of small carbon compounds called Nucleic Acids Nucleic Acids-small compounds of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, hydrogen, and sometimes sulfur
