# The equation, 6CO_2 + 6H_2O -> C_6H_12O_6 + 6O_2, is what type of reaction?

Mar 6, 2017

Well, it looks like a reaction that occurs in green plants under sunlight..........

#### Explanation:

Carbon dioxide on the left hand side, sugar and dioxygen on the right hand side. Is this magic? The name begins with a $\text{P}$.

What do you call the reverse reaction?

${C}_{6} {H}_{12} {O}_{6} + 6 {O}_{2} \rightarrow 6 C {O}_{2} + 6 {H}_{2} O$

The name begins with a $\text{C}$.

How does energy transfer in each reaction?
