Photosynthesis is the process by which plants, some algae and bacteria convert energy from sun light, CO2 from the atmosphere and water, into chemical energy.


6C02 + 6H2O + [photons] -> C6H12O6 + 6O2


Photosynthesis occurs in two stages - light dependent stage and the light-independent stage called the Calvin cycle. The light dependent stage of photosynthesis uses photons from sunlight to make ATP and NADPH.
