The definition of photosynthesis is the process through which plants use water and carbon dioxide to create their food, grow and release excess oxygen into the air.
While all this is going on, the process is called photosynthesis, and then oxygen is made. But the plant doesn’t need all that oxygen so off it goes into the air and lucky for us, we can then breathe properly and stay alive.

Plants absorb water through their roots, and carbon dioxide through their leaves. Some glucose is used for respiration, while some is converted into insoluble for storage. The stored starch can later be turned back into glucose and used in respiration. Oxygen is released as a by-product of photosynthesis.
