What component of the earths atmosphere exists as a result of photosynthesis?
Photosynthesis converts carbon dioxide into oxygen. Therefore, much of the oxygen in our atmosphere is present due to photosynthesis. ...

How is oxygen produced?
Oxygen is produced as a result of various reactions of nuclear fusion inside the stars. Most simple one is the fusion of carbon and helium atoms. Oxygen is created in the cores of stars, where it is the result of the fusion of lighter elements. On Earth, the free oxygen molecules in the atmosphere is released by plants as a byproduct from the process of photosynthesis. ...

Why is fermentation wasteful?
The energy produced by the glycolysis phase is wasted on the fermentation process because if oxygen were present, the pyruvate could go on to the Krebs cycle and the ETS to produce more energy, whereas without oxygen, only 2 ATP result instead of 38. The energy produced by the glycolysis phase is wasted on the fermentation process because if oxygen were present, the pyruvate could go on to the Krebs cycle and the ETS to produce more energy, whereas without oxygen, only...
Has the Earth's atmosphere always have the same composition?
No. The earth's atmosphere has not always had the same composition. At one time it did not contain oxygen. The minerals that formed could not have formed in the presence of oxygen. As a result, scientists are certain that it did not contain oxygen. ...
Asked in Photosynthesis
What two things will be produced by plants from photosynthesis?
Hundreds of things are produced as a result of photosynthesis. But, the high school biology answer is "sugars and oxygen." ...

Why is there carbon dioxide on Mars and not oxygen?
The oxygen in Earth's atmosphere exists as a result of the living things on it (such as plants and bacteria) absorbing carbon dioxide and replacing it with oxygen. Before life on earth, there was very little oxygen in the atmosphere. Given that there is no life on Mars (or at least, none that we know of), the biological processes that created oxygen in Earth's atmosphere do not take place on Mars. ...
How have living organisms changed the composition of the atmosphere over time?
Oxygen did not exist in the atmosphere until about 2.4 billion years ago. Living organisms have increased the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere. Two main processes have been responsible for changes in the earth's atmosphere. Plants use carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and release oxygen. The second atmospheric altering process comes from volcanic eruptions and the sulfur they omit. The fast development of animals came about as a result of the increased oxygen in the atmosphere. ...
Asked in Biology, Photosynthesis
What gas is produced as a result of photosynthesis?
Oxygen! This is because a plant takes in carbon Dioxide and it produces oxygen to help organisms breath and live our lives. ...
Asked in Atmospheric Sciences, Photosynthesis
When organisms began using photosynthesis what gas was added to the atmosphere as a result?
Oxygen is one of the products of photosynthesis and is the gas that rose in abundance in the atmosphere due to the process of photosynthesis. ...
Asked in Photosynthesis, Marine Biology
Carbon dioxide gas is produced during photosynthesis?
Carbon dioxide is used during photosynthesis. Oxygen is produced as a result of photosynthesis. The formula, where both can be seen in the correct order of use and result is, 6CO2+6H20---->C6H12O6+6O2 (Carbon dioxide in bold and pure oxygen in italics.) ...
