What are the raw materials for photosynthesis?

Carbon dioxide form air and water from soil.

Think about the needs of a plant!  They need water, carbon dioxide and sunlight!

Water and Carbon Dioxide (CO2), with the presence of light as light energy is required for photosynthesis to happen

All green plants are autotroph, they need sunlight, water and carbondioxide to carry photosynthesis.

Water (H2O) and Carbon Dioxide(CO2) with sunlight as energy

Carbon dioxide & water

raw materials in photosynthesis are:Corbondioxode,Water and Sunlight.    these raw materials will combine to give glucose and oxygen besides water.

Photosynthesis is like the reverse of aerobic respiration. The process essentially requires water and carbon dioxide and is driven by energy from light. Photosynthesis occurs in a number of steps including photolysis and the movement of electrons down a transport chain. It ultimately ends in the production of glucose and oxygen. Contact me for a step-by-step explanation

the raw materials are carbondioxide and water in the presence of oxygen.

Photosynthesis is plant's life. By this phenomenon      they make food for them. They require water and         carbon dioxide in presence of light to make their food which is glucose.

Water and carbon dioxide are the "raw" materials, though remember photosynthesis cannot occur without the photo-chemical reaction which is achieve by chlorophyll which is located in the chloroplasts in plant cells, which absorb the sunlight to facilitate this reaction.Hope this helps

I think that your questions has been answered - however, for future reference I'd caution against stating that "light" or "sunlight" is a material.Light is the energy that the plant uses to convert the carbon dioxide and water into glucose - kind of the same as the heat of a fire converting fuel into carbon dioxide and water.The reaction of photosynthesis needs energy to work, and that energy is light. Therefore, light itself isn't a material, because it has no substance.Technically it shouldn't even be included in the written reaction, or if it is it should be written above the arrow, and no "+" should be included.

Raw materials for photosynthesis is The raw materials of photosynthesis are water, carbon dioxide, sunlight and chlorophyll.

6CO2 + 6H2o  --> C6H12O6 +6O26 molecules of carbon dioxide + 6 molecules of water produce one glucose molecule and 6 oxygen molecules using light energy.In other words:carbon dioxide + water (with energy from light) combine to form glucose and oxygen in the chlorophyll (pigment) of chloroplasts.

The raw materials of photosynthesis are carbon dioxide and water know the presence of light.

CO2 (Carbon dioxide) + C6H12O6 (Glucose) ---Light---> O2 (Oxygen) + H20 (Water)+ Energy

Depends how in detail you want to go, but generally Water and Glucose (though the formation of glucose from other sugars or Bio-molecules is considered to be part of photosynthesis by some people. Personally I think of them as seperate processes.
