Lactic Acid
3 of 19
Anaerobic respiration is the release of ____(1)____ from ____(2)____ molecules in the absence of _____(3)_____
(1) Energy ; (2) Glucose ; (3) Oxygen
4 of 19
What is the word equation of anaerobic respiration?
Glucose ---> lactic acid + energy
5 of 19
What is the symbol equation of anaerobic respiration?
C6H12O6 ---> 2C3H6O3 + energy
6 of 19
When animals work very hard their ________ use up a lot of energy
Muscles
7 of 19
What are the 2 drawbacks of muscles being able to release energy from food without using oxygen?
It gives only about 5% of the energy that aerobic respiration yields + lactic acid is poisonous
8 of 19
What happens is lactic acid builds up in the cells?
It inhibits muscular contraction, which leads to fatigue and eventually death
9 of 19
The harmful lactic acid is carried out of the muscles in the _______
Blood
10 of 19
It is transported around the body to the ___(1)___, ___(2)___ and ___(3)___ where it is oxidised to ____(4)____, which can be used to release energy by aerobic respiration
(1) Heart ; (2) Liver ; (3) Kidneys ; (4) Pyruvate
11 of 19
The heart, liver and kidneys need extra ________ to do this
Oxygen
12 of 19
The extra oxygen is the _________ _______
Oxygen Debt
13 of 19
The (bigger / smaller) the oxygen debt, the longer a person will puff and pant
Bigger
14 of 19

(1) Plants ; (2) Micro-organisms
15 of 19
When plant cells respire, they produce ____(1)____ and _______ (2) ________ not ________ (3) _______
(1) Ethanol ; (2) Carbon dioxide ; (3) Lactic acid
16 of 19
___________ form lactic acid during anaerobic respiration
