How does a tree take carbon dioxide and turn it into oxygen?

    The process where plants take in sunlight and convert it to energy is called photosynthesis. This process is done in an organelle in a plant cell, called the chlorophyll. Chlorophyll absorbs light and uses its energy, along with carbon dioxide, to create ATP and NADPH, which are used as energy in other parts of the cell. Oxygen is one of the results of the reaction.

    Photosynthesis is the process by which carbon dioxide is converted to oxygen. Here’s an excerpt from the website linked below: 

    “Photosynthesis converts light energy into the chemical energy of sugars and other organic compounds. This process consists of a series of chemical reactions that require carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) and store chemical energy in the form of sugar. Light energy from light drives the reactions. Oxygen (O2) is a byproduct of photosynthesis and is released into the atmosphere.”
