What happen to the 02 gas after photosynthesis has occurred?
Leaves have holes in them for two reasons. One is to take CO2 in. The other reason is to let O2 out. These holes are on the underside of the leaves, and are called stoma. When these holes open, O2 is released into the air. That's why it's said that plants produce oxygen, because it is a waste product from photosynthesis and is released through the stoma.
In the atmosphere, carbon is attached to the oxygen gas molecules and with the help of the sun and photosynthesis; the C02 gas is pulled from the air to make plant food from carbon molecules. Through food chains, the carbon in the plants moves into the animals that consume the plants, and animals eat other animals are getting the carbon from their food. In basic terms: carbon moves from plants to animals, and into the…
What might happen to all life on earth if the balance between photosynthesis and cell respiration were disrupted?
Plants use Photosynthesis to produce ATP. This action needs CO2 and it will produce 02. Both plants and animals need glucose, with respiration ATP is converted to glucose. Respiration needs O2 and it will produce CO2. To conclude, respiration will consume O2 and will release C02, and photosynthesis will consume CO2 and will release 02. Hope this helped a bit.
