Water molecules are split by light energy during photosynthesis, forming oxygen and hydrogen as by-products. The hydrogen can then be used to fix carbon dioxide to form organic molecules.

Role of water in photosynthesis?

The role of the plants stem during photosynthesis is to bring the plant the needed water needed for photosynthesis. The water has a chemical reaction with the carbon dioxide and produces glucose and oxygen.

Xylem only transports water from the roots to the upper parts of the plant, it plays no direct role in photosynthesis

The role of water H20 is to donate H+ ions to the cell, which are subsequently used in pathways to generate energy in the form of ATP. This is why oxygen is released during photosynthesis.

what role does rubp in photosynthesis

Photosynthesis is CO2 + Water --> Oxygen and Glucose.Hydrogen moves from the water molecules (H20) to the Glucose molecules (C6H12O6)

The role of photosynthesis II is the generation of ATP along with splitting of the water molecules. The electron transfer, is another function of photosynthesis II.

Stems play a vital role in photosynthesis. Stems move water and minerals to the leaves and transport food from the leaves to the roots.

it soaks up water - Laura Simpson.

P680+ is responsible for the oxidation of water to O2.

The roots absorb water and minerals for photosynthesis and other metabolic activities.

Photosynthesis splits water to liberate O2 and fixes CO2 into sugar.

Sugar has the role of sunlight,water,carbondixide and chlorophyll.Not only sugar has the process in photosynthesis Oxygen also.Want to understand see what i write down : Sunlight+water+carbondixide+chlorophyll=Sugar=oxygen.This process is called photosynthesis.

the leaves capture the water for the plant

The stomata are the pores in a leaf used for gas exchange. Therefore, the role in photosynthesis is the intake of carbon dioxide from the air and the release of oxygen and water vapor.

Causes the photolysis of water and enables the calvin cycle to occur or the light-dependent reaction of photosynthesis.

There is no role of oxygen in photosynthesis. Oxygen is used as the terminal electron acceptor during respiration. Oxygen is the by-product of a water molecule breaking down in the very beginning of photosynthesis to supply photosystem II with electrons.

The role of photosynthesis in a food chain is called a producer.

In photosynthesis oxygen is produced as a bye product during the photolysis of water but in cellular respiration it breaks up carbohydrates in to CO2 and water.

Enzymes act as catalysts for biochemical reactions. Only few enzymes are involved in photosynthesis and their role is to enable the process of transformation of carbon dioxide in the air and water to carbohydrates and oxygen.

Photosynthesis splits water to liberate O2 and fixes CO2 into sugar Water is split to have it's electrons replace the excited electron of chlorophyll the enters photosystem II.

Light energy is used to combine carbon dioxide and water

water is a raw material. It is using for release electrons.

water plays a part in the process that is Photosynthesis. However photosynthesis is not a producer of water.
