Respiration is the process of relesaing energy from glucose, which happens constantly in every living cell

Types of Respiration:

  • Aerobic Respiration
  • Anaerobic Respiration

Aerobic Respiration: - needs plenty of oxygen

Word Equation: Glucose + Oxygen Carbon Dioxide + Water (+energy)

Symbol Equation: C6H12O6 + 6O2 6CO2 + 6H2O (+energy)

Anaerobic Respiration: - doesn't use oxygen at all

Anaerobic Respiration in Animals: GlucoseLactic Acid (+energy)

Anearobic Respiration in Plants: Glucose Ethanol + Carbon Dioxide (+energy)
