Basal metabolic rate - (BMR) the minimum energy requirement for you to stay alive.

Glycolysis - Occurs in the cytoplasm of cells. The splitting of glucose into a 3 carbon compound called pyruvate. It is anaerobic and produces a net gain of 2 ATP, 2 hydrogens and 2 pyruvate molecules.

Pyruvate -  a 3 carbon compound that is produced in glycolysis and goes to the link reaction.

conenzyme NAD - accepts hydrogen atoms and takes them to the electron transport chain. As they accept the hydrogen it becomes reduced and is called reduced NAD.

Substrate level phosphorylation - the synthesis of ATP by adding ADP and Pi together with energy for the formation coming from the substrates in a reaction.

Link reaction - turns the pyruvate from gylcolysis into acetyl coenzyme A for the Kreb's cycle. It does this by…



Brilliant :) Thank You
