Aerobic respiration

  • requires lots of oxygen
  • translates to "with oxygen"
  • it is the best way to release energy from glucose
  • aerobic respiration is what we use most of the time
  • when the rate increases, oxygen consumption and CO2 production increase
  • rate of oxygen consumption may be used to measure metabolic rate
  • chemical equation for respiration is: C6H12O6 + 6O2 → 6CO2 + 6H2O
  • word equation for respiration is: glucose + oxygen → carbon dioxide + water
