Biology Summary Sheet
Respiration, lungs and breathing, smoking, and the circulatory system.

Respiration and Breathing
Energy Content per gram of food (J) = 4.2 x temp. Rise x 20/ mass of food

There are two types of respiration
Aerobic Respiration
Anaerobic Respiration
Aerobic Respiration takes place in…

Single cell thick wall as narrow as a red blood vessel.
Oxygen and glucose leave through diffusion
Carbon dioxide enters through diffusion
Only works because the distance between the capillaries and cells are tiny.
Capillaries are always very near a cell, so the capillaries can deliver oxygenated…
