    Cellular respiration is the chemical process that generates energy by breaking down food molecules when oxygen is present (Prentice Hall). The chemical equation of cellular respiration is 6O2 + C6H12O6 6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy, meaning the reactants of cellular respiration are oxygen and glucose while the products are carbon dioxide, water, and energy (Gregory). Cellular respiration is crucial to life because it provides all cellular processes with the energy needed in order to function. This process

    Adrian Jackson Mrs. Kasicky Biology 1st 23 March 2014 Cellular Respiration Do you know how you are able to run long distances or lift heavy things? One of the reasons is cellular respiration. Cellular respiration is how your body breaks down the food you’ve eaten into adenosine triphosphate also known as ATP. ATP is the bodies energy its in every cell in the human body. We don’t always need cellular respiration so it is sometimes anaerobic. For example, when we are sleeping or just watching television

    Aerobic Cellular Respiration Humans, and all animals, use adenosine triphosphate (ATP) as the main energy source in cells. The authors of Biological Science 5th edition said that “In general, a cell contains only enough ATP [adenosine triphosphate] to last from 30 seconds to a few minutes”. It is that way “Because it has such high potential energy, ATP is unstable and is not stored”. They also state that “In an average second, a typical cell in your body uses an average of 10 million ATP molecules

    only animals perform cellular respiration. It is true that plants perform photosynthesis. What it is not true, it is that only animals perform cellular respiration. Cellular respiration is the process in which an organism obtains its energy. All living organisms perform cellular respiration, whether they are plants or animals. For instance, every cell in an animal requires oxygen to perform cellular respiration which gives off carbon dioxide and water as waste products. Respiration is the process by

    From my reading I learned that cellular respiration is a multi-step metabolic reaction type process that takes place in each living organism 's cell rather it be plant or animal. It’s my understanding that there are two types of cellular respiration, one called aerobic cellular respiration which required oxygen and anaerobic cellular respiration that does not require oxygen. In the anaerobic cellular respiration process, unlike the aerobic process oxygen is not required nor is it the last electron

    Living organisms need energy to perform life functions. To obtain this energy all cells must carry out a process called respiration. In nearly every living thing on Earth, the energy comes from the metabolism of glucose. Essentially all living things require basic sugars to carry out respiration. Cellular respiration is a process in which cells produce the energy they need to survive. It is a series of metabolic reactions and processes that take place in the cells of organisms and are essential

  • Fermentation And Cellular Respiration

    1328 Words  | 6 Pages

    Cellular Respiration is the metabolic reaction and process that occur in the cells of different organisms that convert energy, specifically biochemistry energy from nutrients into ATP to release waste products. ATP is the an abbreviation of adenosine triphosphate. ATP is broken down and releases energy and then turns into ADP. ADP is also an abbreviation for adenosine diphosphate. This ADP is used for a specific reason. It is used for metabolic processes. ADP is known as low energy, and ATP is known

    Introduction All living organisms require energy. In order to obtain energy, cells within the organisms must go through the processes of cellular respiration and/or fermentation. The way in which “oxidation of glucose leads to ATP production” is emphasized in cellular respiration (Freeman et al., 2014). Three steps can explain cellular respiration: glycolysis, the TCA cycle (or citric acid cycle or Krebs cycle), and oxidative phosphorylation. Glycolysis is divided into two different stages: energy

  • Photosynthesis Versus Cellular Respiration

    takes place in specific groups of organisms, cellular respiration is done by all cells. In respiration, the energy stored in organic compounds may have been produced by the cell itself or stolen from another organism. Respiration uses oxygen from the environment to create carbon dioxide. The overall reaction for cellular respiration is C H O + 6O ® 6CO + 6H O + energy (heat and ATP). The electron transport chain of cellular respiration and the non-cyclic light reaction of photosynthesis
