Two Stages of Photosynthesis. While the mechanisms of photosynthesis are complex, the overall reaction occurs as follows: carbon dioxide + sunlight + water ---> glucose (sugar) + molecular oxygen. Photosynthesis takes place through several steps which occur during two stages: the light phase and the dark phase.What are the steps in the process of photosynthesis?
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 first step in photosynthesis?
The first step in photosynthesis is. the absorption of light energy. synthesis of water. production of oxygen. formation of ATP.
