Where does respiration take place?
Breathing system Digestive system Circulatory system
Oxygen is inhaled into Enzymes break down This system transports
the body and diffused carbohydrates into small oxygen and glucose to
through the vuoili into glucose molecules which are different organs to carry out
the red blood cells transported around the body respiration.

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 functions. Some of these systems
work together such as oxygen systems involved in respiration.
Aerobic respirations take place continuously in both plants and animals.…read more

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 -> Lactic Acid + Energy
Anaerobic respiration occurs when there is a short supply of oxygen. It allows the body to
release energy in some cells when no oxygen is available.…read more
