  • Digestive System, lungs and circulation all work to provide cells with glucose & oxygen needed for respiration.

Word Equation:

  • Glucose + Oxygen ------> Carbon Dioxide + Water (+ Energy)
    • Carbon Dioxide and water = waste products
    • The energy produced is vital for everything that goes on in body

Mitochondria - the site of respiration:

  • Aerobic respiration involves lots of chemical reaction controlled by different enzymes 
    • Most of them take place in Mitochondria of cell
  • Mitochondria 
    • Tiny shaped parts (organelles) found in almost all parts of cells 
    • Folded inner
