10 Carbon Cycle

Carbon cycle is the process converts carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or dissolved in water into glucose molecules.

Carbon Cycle Process

Plants trap CO2 from atmosphere, convert it in to glucose. As the cycle proceeds, consumers devour the organic carbon compounds that producers manufacture. Then, via respiration both consumer and producers return carbon to the nonliving environment in the form of carbon dioxide. Another process that adds to the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is the process of combustion where fuels are burnt to provide energy for various needs like heating, cooking, transportation and industrial processes. Volcanic eruption also releases carbon dioxide to the atmosphere. Thus, there is complete cycling of carbon in the environment by various living and non-living beings.
