What is the equation for respiration?
glucose + oxygen = carbon dioxide + water
1 of 14
Complete this sentence: Aerobic respiration is using....
oxygen
2 of 14
What is used up during respiration and what are the waste products?
Glucose and oxygen are used and carbon dioxide and water are the waste products
3 of 14
Where does respiration usually occur?
In the mitochondria
4 of 14
What is the energy released by respiration used for?
Build and break larger molecules into smaller ones, to enable muscles to contract and to maintain a steady body temperature
5 of 14
Complete this sentence: During exercise muscles...
Respire quicker than they do at rest
6 of 14
Because muscles are respiring quicker during exercise what must happen? and how does this happen?
Oxygen and glucose must be delived to the muscles quicker and carbon dioxide taken away quicker this happens by increasing rate and depth of breathing and increasing heart rate
7 of 14
Complete this sentence: The increased rate and depth of breathing increases....
the rate of gaseous exchange
8 of 14
What do muscles store glucose as?
Glycogen
9 of 14
What do animals store glucose as?
Starch
10 of 14
Why would the body use anaerobic respiration?
When not enough oxygen is reaching the muscle during exercise
11 of 14
What is the word equation for anaerobic respiration?
Glucose = lactic acid
12 of 14
Why do people seem fatiuged during exercise?
The build up of lactic acid because of anaerobic respiration
13 of 14
What is oxygen debt?
The amount of oxygen needed to oxidise the lactic acid to carbon dioxide and water
