Flashcards in B1.3.2 - Aerobic Respiration Deck (18):
What does energy do for you?
It allows you to move, grow and keep warm
What is aerobic respiration?
The reaction where glucose and oxygen react to transfer energy from a chemical store to another chemical energy store for all processes in a cell
Where do you get the oxygen in your body from?
What is the chemical reaction for aerobic respiration? (Words and symbols)
Glucose + Oxygen -> Carbon Dioxide + Water
C6H12O6 + 6O2 -> 6CO2 + 6H20
What does ATP stand for?
What is ATP?
Energy for all processes in a that gets produced during aerobic respiration
Which living organisms use ATP?
All of them
What is ATP used for?
To synthesise larger molecules from smaller ones to make new cell material
To stay warm
What do plants made amino acids from?
Sugars, nitrates and other nutrients
When does aerobic respiration occur?
All the time
In which sub-cellular structure does respiration occur?
What controls aerobic respiration?
What do the number of mitochondria in a cell tell you?
How active the cell is
What happens to some energy during respiration?
It is transferred to the surroundings by heating
If energy is transferred to surroundings by heating during respiration, what does this mean?
Respiration is an exothermic reaction
If there are lots of mitochondria, is the cell more active or less active?
What are the reactants of aerobic respiration?
Oxygen and glucose
