What is respiration?
The release of energy from food and it occurs in all living cells.
1 of 11
What does respiration provide to living things?
Energy for chemical reactions, growth and movement
2 of 11
What does photosynthesis use?
The Sun's energy and makes food and energy available to food chains
3 of 11
The equation for photosynthesis is:
Carbon dioxide + water ---(light energy)---> glucose + oxygen
4 of 11
The symbol equation for photosynthesis:
6CO2 + 6H2O ---(light energy)--->C6H1206 + 6O2
5 of 11
The equation for Aerobic respiration is:
Glucose + oxygen --> carbon dioxide + water (+energy released)
6 of 11
The symbol equation for Aerobic respiration is:
C6H1206 + 6O2 ---> 6CO2 + 6H2O (+energy released)
7 of 11
The equation of Anaerobic respiration in animal cells and some bacteria:
Glucose -----> lactic acid (+energy released)
8 of 11
