carbon dioxide absortion

Hi Friends
I'm confusing that why is carbon dioxide absortion a good indicator of photosynthesis?? can anybody tell me???

actually, it is CO2

actually, it is CO2 assimilation rate.

as the definition of Photosynthesis, which is a metabolic pathway that converts light energy into chemical energy. Its initial substrates are carbon dioxide and water; the energy source is sunlight (electromagnetic radiation); and the end-products are oxygen and (energy-containing) carbohydrates, such as sucrose, glucose or starch.

does it answer your question?

sorry did not say it the same

sorry did not say it the same answer

and many times O2 evolution rate are also used as a measurement of photosynthesis rate
