A \(CO_2\)

This is the equation for photosynthesis. In photosynthesis, the carbon dioxide is reduced (gains electrons) to become glucose. The oxidation number of carbon in carbon dioxide is +4, however the oxidation number of carbon in glucose is 0, therefore the carbon gains 4 electrons to reduce its oxidation number.[Earth and Physical Science]
