RESPIRATION
Respiration happens only to provide energy.
There 2 kinds of respiration.
1. Aerobic respiration with oxygen.
2. Anaerobic respiration without oxygen.
I will be first talking about AREOBIC RESPIRATION
Aerobic respiration
Happens continuously.
Happens in all living things even in plant since they take energy
from glucose.
­ Respiration happens in the mitochondria.
Plants also have mitochondria
­ majority of the aerobic respiration happens in the mitochondria
­ we use glucose and oxygen this enters the cell 2 products are
made carbon dioxide and energy.
­ Energy can be used for anything.
work equation for aerobic respiration
GLUCSE + OXYGEN = CARBON DIXOIDE + WATER +
ENERGY
ENERGY from respiration is used for 4 things.
1 To join up molecules to make big substance. e.g amino acid builds
for protein by using energy.
2 for movement, energy used for respiration is used to contract the
muscle
