  • Aerobic Respriation
    • Respiration is not breathing in and out
      • Respiration is a series of chemical reactions that release energy by breaking down food molecules
        • This happens in every living cell
      • The energy released by respiration is used to power some of the chemical reaction that happen in our cells
        • Movement
        • Active Transport
        • Synthesis of large molecules
    • Aerobic Respiration
      • Aerobic means 'with oxygen'
      • This type of respiration you are using most of the time
      • aerobic respiration takes place in animal and plant cells
        • Also in some microorganisms
      • Word Equation
        • Glucose + Oxygen = Carbon Dioxide + Water (+ Energy released)
      • Symbol Equation
        • C6H12O6 + 6O2 = 6CO2 + 6C2O (+ Energy released)
