Respiration

HideShow resource information
What is the equation for respiration?
Oxygen+glucose=Carbon dioxide+water
1 of 12
What is the equation for anerobic respiration?
Glucose=Latic Acid
2 of 12
Where does respirtion occur?
Happens in tiny objects in the cytoplasm called mitochondria
3 of 12
Why does anerobic respiration occur?
When exercising very hard, the heart cannot get enough oxygen to the muscles. Anaerobic respiration does not need oxygen. It releases energy from glucose but the amount is much lower. It happens when there is not enough oxygen for aerobic respiration
4 of 12
How much energy is lost in anerobic compared to aerobic?
Much less energy is released by anaerobic respiration than by aerobic respiration.
5 of 12
What does lactic acid do to the body?
The lactic acid that forms causes muscle fatigue and pain.
6 of 12
What is epoc?
An oxygen debt that has to be "paid" back due to it being used in respiration.
7 of 12
What happens to lactic acid after?
Panting after exercise provides oxygen to break down lactic acid. The increased heart rate also allows lactic acid to be carried away by the blood to the liver, where it is broken down.
8 of 12
What do arteries do?
Arteries carry blood away from the heart.
9 of 12
Systoloic
Systolic pressure - the higher measurement when the heart beats, pushing blood through the arteries.
10 of 12
Diastolic
the lower measurement when the heart rests between beats.
