Asked in Photosynthesis
Does photosynthesis represent a single replacement reaction?
No, it is a double replacement reaction. Photosynthesis is not a single reaction pathway but two, one dependent on the other. Therefore, your answer is photosynthesis is a double replacement reaction. The chemical equation for photosynthesis is: 6CO2 + 6H2O --> C6H12O6 + 6O2 Also, since you start AND end with two compounds, that also makes it a double replacement reaction. ...

What two types of reactions occur during photosynthesis?
The two reactions which occur during photosynthesis are light reaction and dark reaction. Light reaction takes place only in the presence of light. Dark reaction can occur with or without light. ...
What are to two main reactions in photosynthesis?
The first main reaction in photosynthesis is that the plant using it creates food with sunlight. The second main reaction of photosynthesis is that the plant makes carbon dioxide(Co2). ...

Why photosynthesis called endothermic reaction?
Photosynthesis is an endothermic reaction because it takes energy (from sunlight) from the environment to use in the photosynthesis reaction. Without the energy input, the photosynthesis reaction could not occur. ...
Why is light reaction of photosynthesis essential for the dark reaction to proceed?
why light reaction of photosynthesis is essential before the dark reaction can procced? ...
