Different concentrations of glucose or different temperatures of the glucose solution could also be used as the independent variable in order to establish the most efficient concentration or temperature. It could also be relevant to measure the thermal energy produced from yeast aerobic respiration by constantly bubbling oxygen gas through a glucose solution. Similar calculations could be carried out to compare the theoretical and practical energy produced. Conclusion The hypothesis was accepted: the temperature of the yeast solution containing glucose did rise in temperature due to the fermentation of glucose by the yeast.
It is the process that is in the presence of oxygen and uses it to break down carbohydrates into carbon dioxide to produce energy necessary for its functioning and growth. Anaerobic fermentation is when the yeast or microorganism slightly grows as it converts the feedstock into a metabolite. In wine making it is the process in which the yeast converts the sugar into Ethanol. Anaerobic fermentation occurs in the absence of oxygen when the yeast is able to decompose the sugar and convert it into the ethanol needed in wine production. (SMITH, 2006)

WEEK 3 PRACTICAL 3 3.1 : METABOLISM – FERMENTATION AND RESPIRATION IN YEASTS INTRODUCTION Yeasts are facultative anaerobes. They are able to metabolize the sugars in two different ways which is aerobic respiration in the presence of oxygen and anaerobic respiration in the absence of oxygen. The aerobic respiration also known as cellular respiration takes place when glucose is broken down in the present of oxygen to yield carbon dioxide, water and energy in the form of ATP. While in anaerobic respiration, fermentation takes place because it occurs in the absence of external electron acceptor. Because every oxidation has to be coupled to a reduction of compound derived from electron donor.
Fermentation is when bacteria or other microorganisms chemically breakdown a substance while giving off heat. Fermentation is used by making many food products, an drink products such as beer, and also fuel. Fermentation and Cellular Respiration are alike in many ways such as organisms make energy by breaking down glucose into energy. They are different because Fermentation makes ATP, while chemical respiration using nutrients to create energy and turns it into adenosine triphosphate. (Carter J.S.
C. Metabolic pathways is catalyzed by a specific enzyme. D. Many metabolic pathways are compartmentalized, with certain steps occurring inside an organelle. E. Metabolic pathways in organisms are regulated by the activities of a few enzyme. Obtaining Energy and Electrons from Glucose The most common fuel for living cells is the sugar Glucose. Cells trap energy while metabolizing glucose If glucose is burned in a flame, it readily forms carbon dioxide, water, and a lot of energy----but only if oxygen gas(O2) is present.
Investigating the Effect of Temperature on the Fermentation of Yeast To fully investigate the effect of temperature on the rate of fermentation of yeast Background Information Yeast is a single-cell fungus, occurring in the soil and on plants, commonly used in the baking and alcohol industries. Every living thing requires energy to survive and through respiration, glucose is converted into energy. There are two types of respiration available to living cells are: 1. Aerobic requires oxygen and takes place inside the mitochondria of iving cells. The energy is stored as adenosine triphosphate (ATP) Aerobic respiration produces 2890KJ/Mole or 38ATP.

Food molecules of chemical energy is released and partially captured in the form of ATP in the process in cellular respiration. Glucose is most commonly used as an example to examine the reaction of Cellular respiration but other fuels that can be use are fats, proteins and carbohydrates. The formula for cellular respiration is glucose + oxygen --> carbon dioxide + water + energy and the chemical equation for it is C6H12O6 + 6O2 --> 6CO2 + 6H2O + ATP. Cellular respiration can be split in to three metabolic processes: glycolysis, the Krebs cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation. Each of these occurs in a specific region of the cell.
