Aerobic Respiration
Normal Circumstances

6CO2 + C6H12O6 -> 6H2O + 6CO2 + 38 ATP

Oxygen + Glucose -> Water and Carbon Dioxide and Energy
Within this equation for aerobic respiration, water and carbon dioxide are the waste
Many organ systems in the body have a range of…

What is the energy used for?
The energy released from respiration is used for 4 main functions:

Building up small molecules into complex structures
Muscle contractions (movements)
Thermoregulation (keeping the body the same temperature)
Active transport (the movement of substances against the concentration gradient)

Anaerobic respiration
Glucose ->…
