The process of photosynthesis is essential in the oxygen/carbon dioxide cycle. Photosynthesis removes ______ from the atmosphere and produces and releases ______ into the atmosphere. A) glucose, oxygen B) oxygen, glucose C) carbon dioxide, oxygen D) oxygen, carbon dioxide
C) removes carbon dioxide and releases oxygen !!
The reactants of photosynthesis are carbon dioxide, water, and light. This removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere through the stomata in leaves, which allow gases to flow in and out of the plant. This process generates oxygen and glucose. Glucose is the basic sugar molecule and can be broken down into it's component parts in order to create energy to power the organism. So the answer would be C). Hope that helped! :-)
