  • respiration
    • anaerobic respiration
      • in humans
        • respiration when oxygen is in short supply
          • occurs during intensive exercise
        • releases a much smaller amount of energy than aerobic respiration
          • the incomplete oxidation of glucose causes a build up of lactic acid
            • creating oxygen debt
      • in plant and yeast cells
        • the end products are ethanol and co2
        • anaerobic respiration in yeast cells is called fermentation
    • aerobic respiration
      • respiration with oxygen
        • occurs inside mitochondria continuously
      • releases a large amount of energy from each glucose molecule
    • cellular respiration is an exothermic reaction
      • is continuously occurring in all living cells
