How do you get rid of the lactic acid build-up after exercise?
You breathe heavily so O2 can break down lactic acid quickly. Oxygen debt occurs during anaerobic r. since the demand for O2 is greater than the supply. Your heart rate remains high so blood can remove the lactic acid & transport it to the liver.

What is the respiratory quotient formula?
RQ = carbon dioxide produced divided by oxygen used.

What are the differences between aerobic and anaerobic respiration?
Aerobic r. releases energy in the presence of O2. This energy is stored in ATP molecules in a cell, which provide energy for cellular processes. Anaerobic r. releases little energy in the absence of O2 & is the incomplete breakdown of glucose.

What are the word equations for aerobic and anaerobic respiration?
Aerobic: glucose + oxygen = carbon dioxide + water + energy. Anaerobic: glucose = lactic acid + small amount of energy.
