Answer:

You refer to #"photosynthesis"#?

Explanation:

Now, we know that green plants can (miraculously!) convert carbon dioxide into simple sugars. And we can represent this by the equation:

#6CO_2 + 6H_2O +Delta rarr C_6H_12O_6 +6O_2#

So moles of water #=(36*g)/(18.01*g*mol^-1)=2*mol#.

Given stoichiometric carbon dioxide, we can produce #1/3*mol# glucose, i.e. some #60*g# glucose.
