Type of Nutrition: Autotrophic Nutrition

Explanation: Autotrophic nutrition is the process where plants prepare their own food, using inorganic material such as CO2 and H2O in presence of Sunlight and Chlorophyll.

 

Raw material: CO2, H2O

b) Three events:

  1. Absorption of light energy by chlorophyll
  2. Conversion of light energy to chemical energy and splitting of water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen
  3. Reduction of Carbon dioxide to Carbohydrates
