What is the difference between aerobic an anaerobic respiration?
Oxygen is involved in anaerobic respiration
1 of 14
What do mitochondria do?
They are where aerobic respiration takes place
2 of 14
How are mitochondria adapted for their job?
They are rod shaped and have a folded inner membrane, which gives them a greater surface area for enzymes to attach
3 of 14
What are the three main uses for energy released through aerobic respiration?
Converting amino acids into protein, making muscles contract, maintaining body temperature
4 of 14
What is a good indicator to use in an experiment which aims to detect respiration?
Limewater, because it turns cloudy
5 of 14
What is the word equation for anaerobic respiration?
glucose ----> lactic acid + energy
6 of 14
Where is anaerobic respiration likely to occur
Muscle tissue
7 of 14
How does blood doping work?
Blood is removed from an athelete, stored and then replaced before an event, which increases the red blood cell count in the athlete's body
8 of 14
Where does aerobic respiration occur?
Mitochondria
9 of 14
Where does anaerobic respiration occur?
Cytoplasm
10 of 14
Why do muscles ache after exercise?
A buildup of lactic acid, which is a product of anaerobic respiration
11 of 14
Which type of respiration produces more energy?
Aerobic
12 of 14
What is an oxygen debt?
Extra oxygen needed to break down the buildup of lactic acid
13 of 14
Why do muscle cells contain many mitochondria?
They have to respire a lot because the cells and tissue are very active
