Flashcards in Respiration Deck (14):
What is respiration?
The chemical release of energy
What is respiration controlled by?
What is the energy generated from respiration used for?
Muscle cell contraction
What is the word equation for aerobic respiration?
Glucose + oxygen
Name Stage one of respiration
Name stage 2 of respiration
The breakdown of pyruvate
Where does stage 1 take place
In the cytoplasm
Where does stage 2 take place
In the mitochondria
What stage requires oxygen?
The second stage
What happens at the first stage?
Glucose is broken down into 2 ATP and pyruvate
What happens during stage 2?
The pyruvate breaks down into 36 ATP, carbon dioxide and water
What is the equation for anaerobic respiration in animal cells?
Glucose➡️ 2 ATP + lactic acid
What does the pyruvate break down to in animal cells if no oxygen is present?
