1 Functions of Leaves

2 Plant Parts Leaves –Provide food (photosynthesis) –Have chloroplasts (green coloring- chlorophyll) –Transpiration (sweating) –Respiration

3 Photosynthesis Leaves collect sunlight, water and carbon dioxide to make sugar (food) for the plant –This food is then transported through the phloem The chemical equation for this process is 6 H2O + 6 CO2 C6H12O6 + 6 O2 sugar Sun energy

4 Respiration Leaves break down sugars to get energy This process releases excess water as waste The chemical equation is C6H12O6 + 6 O2 energy + 6 H2O + 6 CO2 Energy released To help plant grow sugar

5 Transpiration Taking in CO2 and releasing O2 and H2O as waste products after respiration
