    Answer:

    End product of photosynthesis.

    Explanation:

    Photosynthesis is a process that plants undergo in the manufacture of their food. This is done in the presence of sunlight which is trapped by their coloring pigment called chlorophyll and reactants such as Carbon dioxide and Water.

    6CO2+6H2O= C6H12O6+ 6O2

    The oxygen gas which is a waste product of photosynthesis is released into the atmosphere and used by animals in respiration.

    Answer:

    Explanation:

    Equation of photosynthesis:

    6CO2(g) + 6H2O(l) –> C6H12O6(s) + 6O2(g)

    From the above equation, on the RHS, The oxygen during photosynthesis comes from split water molecules. During photosynthesis, the plant absorbs water and carbon dioxide. After the absorption, the water molecules are disassembled or broken down to extract electrons and protons in the presence of ultraviolet light and converted into simple sugar and oxygen.

    Equation of the water breakdown:

    2H2O –> O2 + 4H+
