Flashcards in B1.3.2 - Aerobic Respiration Deck (18):
1

What does energy do for you?

It allows you to move, grow and keep warm

2

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

3

Where do you get the oxygen in your body from?

Breathing

4

What is the chemical reaction for aerobic respiration? (Words and symbols)

Glucose + Oxygen -> Carbon Dioxide + Water
C6H12O6 + 6O2 -> 6CO2 + 6H20

5

What does ATP stand for?

Adenosine triphosphate

6

What is ATP?

Energy for all processes in a that gets produced during aerobic respiration

7

Which living organisms use ATP?

All of them

8

What is ATP used for?

To synthesise larger molecules from smaller ones to make new cell material
For movement
To stay warm

9

What do plants made amino acids from?

Sugars, nitrates and other nutrients

10

When does aerobic respiration occur?

All the time

11

In which sub-cellular structure does respiration occur?

Mitochondrion

12

What controls aerobic respiration?

Enzymes

13

What do the number of mitochondria in a cell tell you?

How active the cell is

14

What happens to some energy during respiration?

It is transferred to the surroundings by heating

15

If energy is transferred to surroundings by heating during respiration, what does this mean?

Respiration is an exothermic reaction

16

If there are lots of mitochondria, is the cell more active or less active?

More active

17

What are the reactants of aerobic respiration?

Oxygen and glucose

18

What are the products of aerobic respiration?

Carbon dioxide and water
