Which of the following BEST describes the energy conversions that occur during photosynthesis?

A

Kinetic energy to chemical energy to potential energy.

B

Potential energy to chemical energy to kinetic energy.

C

Light energy to kinetic energy to potential energy.

D

Light energy to potential energy to chemical energy.
