how is oxygen formed during photosynthesis

Expert Answer:

During photosynthesis, six molecules of carbon dioxide react with six molecules of water to produce one molecule of glucose and six molecules of oxygen.

6CO2 + 6H2O → C6H12O6 + 6O2

The oxygen thus produced escapes from the stomata underneath the leaf surface into the atmosphere.
