  • Respiration
    • Aerobic
      • glucose + oxygen -> carbon dioxide +water
      • occurs in mitochondria
      • complete breakdown of glucose
    • Anaerobic
      • occurs when oxygen cannot be delivered to cells quick enough
      • glucose -> lactic acid (+energy)
      • occurs in cytoplasm
      • incomplete breakdown of glucose
    • Polymers
      • long chain molecules which can be broken down to monomers
    • Breakdown of biological molecules
      • emulsification
      • carbohydrase
        • carbohydrate
          • glucose
      • protease
        • proteins
          • amino acids
      • lipase
        • lipids
          • fatty acids, glycerol
