Expert Answer:

 

Photosynthesis can be defined as a biochemical process by which green plants synthesize organic compounds from simple inorganic substances like carbon dioxide and water in the presence of sunlight, with the help of chlorophyll.

The simplified equation used to represent this overall process is

6CO2+12H2O+energy=C6H12O6+6O2+6H2O

 

The raw materials required for photosynthesis are water and carbon dioxide.
