what is the equation for aerobic respiration?
glucose + oxygen = water +carbon dioxide
1 of 14
energy released by aerobic respiration can be used to...
build larger molecules, enable muscle contractions, maintain a constant body temperature, build sugars and nitrates
2 of 14
what test is used to see if carbon dioxide is present?
lime water
3 of 14
where do the reactions take place for respiration?
in the mitochondria
4 of 14
what do muscles store glucose as?
glycogen
5 of 14
when you excersize your body needs what?
need more energy therefor need more glucose and oxygen
6 of 14
why does your heart rate and breathing rate increase in aerobic respiration?
so it supplies the heart with glucose and oxygen and ts get rid of excess carbon dioxide
7 of 14
what happens if you use your muscles for a long time?
they get tired (fatigued)
8 of 14
why do muscles start to respire anaerobically?
because they have too little oxygen
9 of 14
what is produced when glucose is not broken down in anaerobic respiration
lactic acid
10 of 14
what removes lactic acid
blood flowing through muscles
11 of 14
what is extra oxygen needed called?
oxygen dept
12 of 14
warming down after excersize helps what?
the breakdown of lactic acid
13 of 14
why do blood vessels in the muscles dilate during excersize?
increased blood supply to the muscle cells to provide oxygen and glucose more quickly and to remove carbon dioxide quicker
