Respiration

HideShow resource information
What is respiration?
The process of releasing energy from glucose
1 of 6
What is produced during respiration?
Chemical energy used to create large molecules from smaller ones (e.g. proteins from amino acids) and heat energy is also released which helps maintain a steady body temperature
2 of 6
Aerobic respiration equation
Glucose + oxygen ==> carbon dioxide + water
3 of 6
Anaerobic respiration in animals equation
Glucose ==> lactic acid
4 of 6
Anaerobic respiration in plants equation
Glucose ==> ethanol (alcohol) + carbon dioxide
5 of 6
Aerobic or anaerobic?
Aerobic respiration is a lot more efficient as a lot of energy is released, whereas in anaerobic respiration the glucose is only partially broken down so less energy is released
