    Photosynthesis is the process by which plants, some bacteria, and some protistans use the energy from sunlight to produce sugar, which cellular respiration converts into ATP, the "fuel" used by all living things. The conversion of unusable sunlight energy into usable chemical energy, is associated with the actions of the green pigment chlorophyll. Most of the time, the photosynthetic process uses water and releases the oxygen that we absolutely must have to stay alive.

    I'm working on it, Mam..

    6CO2 + 6H2O -> C6H12O2  + 6 O2 + heat  (turn it around and you have Respiration, which is why plants and animals depend upon each other)...
