Given the general equation below of photosynthesis, encircle the raw material and product of the light - independent reaction (calvin cycle) stage of photosynthesis.
6CO2 + 6H20 + sunlight → C8H12O6 + 602
The raw materials are water, carbon dioxide, oxygen, glucose, and energy.
After the energy from the sun is converted and packaged into ATP and NADPH, the cell has the fuel needed to build carbohydrate molecules. The carbohydrate molecules made will have a backbone of carbon atoms.
