The process of photosynthesis is divided into two main parts: light dependent reactions and light independent or dark reactions. The light dependent reaction happens when solar energy is captured to make a molecule called ATP (adenosine triphosphate).What is the overall process of photosynthesis?
Overall Process of Photosynthesis. The best‐understood reaction for the synthesis of glucose, and probably the most important quantitatively, is photosynthesis. Photosynthesis converts carbon from carbon dioxide to glucose with reducing equivalents supplied from water and energy supplied from light.
