Topic 2 The Cell Systems Lesson 6 Cellular Respiration
|What is cellular respiration?
|the process in which oxygen and glucose are broken down to release energy
|What are the reactants of cellular respiration?
|glucose and oxygen
|What are the products of cellular respiration?
|carbon dioxide, water and ATP (energy)
|What is the role of mitochondria during cellualr respiration?
|it creates large amounts of energy
|Explain how its structure helps the mitochondria?
|its folds provide larger surface area, so that more chemical reactions can occur
|Compare photosynthesis and cellular respiration.
|opposite processes; one cycles into the next; only plants use photosynthesis; all organisms use cellular respiration
|What is fermentation?
|it is the release of energy without oxygen
|Where is alcoholic fermentation seen?
|in live yeast cells and other unicellular organisms
|What is lactic acid fermentation?
|it is when your body breaks down glucose without the use of oxygen
