what is aerobic respiration?
Aerobic respiration needs oxygen. It is the release of a relatively large amount of energy in cells by the breakdown of food substances in the presence of oxygen
1 of 7

glucose + oxygen → carbon dioxide + water
2 of 7
what is the balanced symbol equation for aerobic respiration?
C6H12O6 + 6O2 → 6CO2 + 6H2O

what is anaerobic respiration?
anaerobic respiration does not need oxygen. It is the release of a relatively small amount of energy in cells by the breakdown of food substances in the absence of oxygen.

what is the balanced symbol equation for anaerobic respiration?
C6H12O6 → 2C3H6O3

which type of respiration produces more energy?
aerobic respiration- Glucose is not completely broken down, so much less energy is released than during aerobic respiration.
