Glucose( C6H12O6) is produced by photosynthese.

For every kilo of water the plant takes in ,how much glucose can it make ?

I done the balanced equation wich is (I think)
6H2O+6CO2 = C6 H12 3O6
After that I get a ratio of 108/372 wich give me a tota of 3444 grammes of glucose Am I right ?

1. You're almost correct with the balanced equation for photosynthesis:

6H2O + 6CO2 = C6H12O6 + 6O2

For every 6 moles of water the plant takes in, it produces 1 mole of glucose.

A kilo of water = 1000g
Number of moles of water = 1000/18 = 55.55

Number of moles of glucose produced = 55.55/6 = 13.88

Mass of glucose = Number of moles x Molecular Mass
= 13.88 x 180
= 2500g
= 2.5kg
