photosynthesis

Asked by kalpana | Nov 11, 2007 | GCSE Level > Biology > Advice

kalpana asks:

why is the below equation of photosynthesis wrong?
6 CO2 + 6 H2O + light energy => C6H12O6 + 6 O2

etutor answers:
It is OK as a summary, but this reaction never happens - carbon dioxide cannot react with water in this way. The process is a multi-stage set of reactions, not a single reaction as this equation implies
