Are you studying biology, especially about the photosynthesis process? Well, you cannot fully study photosynthesis without knowing more about the structure of a leaf. The leaf is adapted to play a vital role in the process of photosynthesis. Hence, this time we have collected a handy of free and printable diagram of a leaf for you to save and print as the reference and media in learning photosynthesis. Here look at the first one below.
Leaves enable photosynthesis to occur. Photosynthesis is the process by which leaves absorb light and carbon dioxide to produce carbohydrate (food) for plants to grow. Leaves are adapted to perform their function, e.g. they have a large surface area to absorb sunlight. The equation for photosynthesis is: Carbon dioxide and water → glucose and oxygen. Besides, leaves are the source of all of food on the plant, it also helps recycle all of the world’s carbon dioxide in the air, leaves also contain the world’s most abundant enzyme. Take a good look at the diagram and the various parts of the leaf structure.
Photosynthesis takes place inside plant cells in small things called chloroplasts. Chloroplasts (mostly found in the mesophyll layer) contain a green substance called chlorophyll. Below are the other parts of the cell that work with the chloroplast to make photosynthesis happen. The other diagrams of a leaf are presented below, with the worksheet or unlabeled version.
These diagrams are all free to be saved. Just click on the images to enlarge and save it. Don’t forge to share this article to anyone who may in need for some helps in studying photosynthesis! Thank you and have a good day!
