1. What is Respiration?

  • It is the process of breaking down glucose by taking in Carbon Dioxide
  • It is the process of breaking down glucose to release energy and happens in every cell belonging to living things. It is how they get energy from their food.
  • Respiration is the opposite of photosynthesis and only happens at night
  • It is the process whereby oxygen is broken down to release energy and happens in every cell in every living thing.
  • It is the process of breaking down Carbon dioxide in our systems to create energy.

2. Which is the correct word equation for Aerobic respiration?

  • glucose + oxygen --> carbon dioxide + water (+ Energy)
  • glucose --> lactic acid (+ energy)
  • glucose + carbon dioxide --> oxygen + water (+ energy)
  • carbon + oxygen --> water + glucose (+ energy)
  • light + energy --> oxygen + sulphur

3. Aerobic respiration only happens when there isn't enough oxygen in the air.

  • False
  • True

4. What is Diffusion?

  • Diffusion is where oxygen diffuses lactic acid in muscles.
  • Diffusion is the movement of particles from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration.
  • Diffusion is the movement of particles from an area of higher concentration to an area of low concentration.
  • Diffusion is the movement of red and white blood cells through the blood stream.
  • Diffusion is when waste products such as glucose are taken away from cells.

5. What six things happen when you exercise?

  • you can't breath, heart rate speeds up, more glucose, less lactic acid, diffusion stops, more blood circulates around the body
  • Muscles need energy to contract, increased respiration, more oxygen, breathing rate increases, heart rate increases, more diffusion
  • Muscle cells become smaller, more carbon dioxide, less oxygen, less diffusion, more energy, heart rate increases

Thank you for the comments :)

Yes, I was only planning on covering the basics here, just for a quick test :).

A popular short quiz covering the basics of respiration that could be used as a starting point to see what areas you are already confident with and point out what your next steps in revision should be. It might be worth noting the equation for anaerobic respiration is only correct for animals as other organisms,( some bacteria, fungi and plants) make different end products.

Accurate information, but quite brief.
