Respiration

Respiration is the process of breaking down glucose to release energy. This happens into all living organisms thats around us like plants and animals.

Aerobic Respiration is respiration using OXYGEN. This is the efficient way to release energy from glucose.

EQUATION:

GLUCOSE + OXYGEN ------> CARBON DIOXDE + WATER ( + ENERGY )           

WASTE DIFFUSE
