What is the definition of respiration?
Respiration is the process of releasing energy from glucose, which goes on in every cell.

What is aerobic respiration?
Aerobic respiration is respiration with oxygen. It's the most efficient way to get energy from glucose. It goes on all the time in animals and plants and occurs in mitochondria.
2 of 5
What is the word equation for aerobic respiration?
Glucose + oxygen -> carbon dioxide +water + energy
3 of 5
What are the uses of aerobic respiration?
To build up larger molecules from smaller ones (amino acids to proteins). To allow muscles to contract. To keep body temperature steady. In plants to build sugars and nitrates into amino acids (then proteins).

What is the other type of repiration?
Anaerobic respiration - respiration without oxygen.
