Whats the importance of respiration?
It releases energy from food and this energy is trapped in a molecule called ATP,which can be used to provide the energy for various processes in living organisms.
1 of 9
What is the wod equation for anaerobic repiration?
glucose->Lactic acid (+energy)
2 of 9
What is the symbol equation for aerrobic respiration?
C(6)H(12)O(6) + 6O(2)-> 6CO(2) +6H(2)O
3 of 9
When is anaerobic respiration used?
During exercise, as muscels often dont get enough oxygen despite increasing breathing and heart rate.
4 of 9
2 disadvantages of anaerobic respiration?
Makes lactic acid and build up in muscles causing fatigue and pain. 2)releases less energy per glucose molecule than aerobic respiration.
5 of 9
What is an oxygen debt?
The incomplete breakdown of glucose causing the build up in lactic acid.
6 of 9
Why does breathing and heart rate stay high during recovery?
1) so rapid bloodflow can carry away the lactic acid from the liver (2) to get extra oxygen supply, allowing the liver to break down the lactic acid.
7 of 9
Why does temperature change and pH affect respiration rate?
Because they affect the enzymes and respiration is controlled by enzymes.
8 of 9
2 ways to measure rate of respiration?
measure amount of oxygen is used up, the faster it is consumed, the faster the respiration rate. (2) The rate at which carbon dioxide is made.
