  • (c) help with chlorophyll formation

    Chlorophyll contains five elements:

    1.Carbon

    2.Hydrogen

    3.Oxygen

    4.Nitrogen

    5.Magnesium

    So you can see that they must also extract magnesium from the soil if they are going to grow properly.

    Nitrate, sulphate, phosphate and magnesium are mineral salts.

    Here is a summary of the most important information on photosynthesis:

    Photosynthesis requires:

    1.carbon dioxide,

    2.water,

    3.light energy,

    4.chlorophyll.

    Photosynthesis produces:

    1.glucose,

    2.waste oxygen.

    Photosynthesis is the conversion of:

    1.light energy into,

    2.chemical energy.

    Photosynthesis is essential for:

    1.growth

    Photosynthesis takes place in:

    1.leaves !!!!!

    Ok, so the plant needs to take in the nutrients in the soil, so the chlorophyll is formed – and the plant does photosynthesis. : )
