3

What is the word equation for aerobic respiration?

Glucose + oxygen
➡️co2 +water+38atp

4

Name Stage one of respiration

Glycolysis

5

Name stage 2 of respiration

The breakdown of pyruvate

6

Where does stage 1 take place

In the cytoplasm

7

Where does stage 2 take place

In the mitochondria

8

What stage requires oxygen?

The second stage

9

What happens at the first stage?

Glucose is broken down into 2 ATP and pyruvate

10

What happens during stage 2?

The pyruvate breaks down into 36 ATP, carbon dioxide and water

11
