Reactions in which energy is utilized are called endothermic reactions.


In Photosynthesis, green plants absorb heat energy from the sun and utilise it to make oxygen


The following equation takes place


Carbon Dioxide + Water → Glucose + Oxygen

6CO 2 (g) + 6H 2 O (l) → C 6 H 12 O 6 (aq) + 6O 2 (g)
