HideShow resource information
Define Respiration
The process of breaking down glucose to release energy which occurs in every living cell
1 of 9
Word Equation for Aaerobic respiration
Glucose + Oxygen = Carbon Dioxide + Water (+ Energy)
2 of 9
What does the circulatory system carry?
Glucose, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide
3 of 9
What are the smallest blood vessels? Why are they important?
Capillaries, situated close by to every cell to supply them with glucose and oxygen and take away carbon dioxide
4 of 9
What is the process called whereby glucose, oxygen and carbon dioxide move between the cells and capillaries?
Diffusion
5 of 9
Define Diffusion
The gradual movement of particles from places of high concentration to low concentration
6 of 9
When cells respire what do they use and what do they produce?
Use oxygen and glucose and produce carbon dioxide
7 of 9
What affects the rate of diffusion?
The difference in concentration
8 of 9
The faster the rate of diffusion the bigger...
the difference in concentration
