  • Respiration
    • Aerobic
      • glucose+ oxygen= carbon dioxide+ water+ (energy)
      • Produces more energy than anaerobic
    • Anaerobic
      • glucose= lactic acid + (oxygen)
      • Oxygen debt - oxygen needed to break down poisonous lactic acid
        • glucose= lactic acid + (oxygen)
      • Produces less energy
    • Takes place in mitochondria
      • Folded inner membrane provides a large surface area
      • The number of mitochondria in a cell shows how active it is and that it requires a lot of energy
    • Reasons
      • Energy needed to build up larger molecules
      • Energy for muscle contractions
      • Maintain constant temperature
