Respiration releases energy for cells from glucose. This can be aerobic respiration, which needs oxygen, or anaerobic respiration, which does not.
Symbol for aerobic respiration is: Word eqaution for aerobic respiration is:
C6H1206 + 6O2 > 6CO2 + 6H20 Glucose + oxygen → carbon dioxide + water
The rate of respiration can be determined by measuring:
- Increased oxygen consumption
- increased carbon dioxide production
RQ = carbon dioxide produce ÷ oxygen used
ATP is a substance that is used as the energy source for many processes in cells. ATP is…
