Name the raw materials required for photosynthesis. How do plants obtain these raw materials?

Answer :

The raw materials for photosynthesis are carbon dioxide and water. Plants need carbon dioxide and water for the process of photosynthesis. Plants take carbon dioxide from the air. Carbon dioxide enters the leaves through tiny pores present on the leaves’ surface called stomata. Plants take water from the soil through their roots by the process of osmosis. The xylem vessels then transport the water to the leaves where it reaches the chloroplast containing cells and is utilized in photosynthesis.
