  1. Photosynthesis is a chain of endothermic reactions. However, during this process energy is not absorbed as heat as in other endothermic reactions. After plants absorb its energy from sunlight then converts it into oxygen and glucose from carbon dioxide and water, it is stored in the glucose (or sugar) molecules. Your textbook should have a detailed illustration of the process.
