Well It creates carbohydrates through the Calvin Cycle...RuBP + CO2 --> PEP then PEP into G3P (Using the energy from breaking of ATP to ADP and oxidation of NADHP to NADH). GEP is essentially turned into: Glucose, fructose, starch, cellulose Oils G3P + Nitrogen --> Amino acids Some G3P then goes into the Regeneration state which makes the original RuBP that you used originally for your first equation (Hense it is a cycle). How is makes lipids proteins and Nucleic acids..:S? Unfortunately I do not know? I hope I helped enough!

Photosynthesis is the process through which the carbon in CO2 molecules is 'fixed' - that is, the process through which it is incorporated into more complex molecules found in biologic systems. Initially carbohydrates. Those initial carbohydrates are then used to as starting points to make lipids, proteins, nucleic acids - all the other complex, carbon based molecules in living cells.
