Breathing
Breathing is the process of getting oxygen into the lungs and carbon dioxide out of the lungs. It allows for gas exchange to take place so that oxygen can be absorbed from the lungs into the blood and carbon dioxide is removed from the blood and brea

Respiration
espiration is the release of energy from the break down of glucose in living cells. Respiration takes place in every living cell and all cells need to respire to produce the energy they need.

Inspiration
This is breathing air into the body
3 of 7
Expiration
This is breathing air out of our body

Gas Exchange
Gas exchange is the delivery of oxygen from the lungs to the bloodstream, and the elimination of carbon dioxide from the bloodstream to the lungs and out of the body.

Aerobic Respiration
Aerobic means “with air”. This type of respiration needs oxygen for it to occur. The word equation for aerobic respiration is Glucose + Oxygen --- Carbon dioxide + Water + Energy and C6H12O6 + 6O2 --- 6CO2 + 6H2O + 2900 kJ/mol

Anaerobic Respitation
Anaerobic means without air (“an” means without). Sometimes there is not enough oxygen around for animals and plants to respire, but they still need energy to survive. Instead they carry out respiration without oxygen to produce the energy.
