calorie

amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water by 1 degree Celsius

glycolysis

first step in releasing the energy of glucose, in which a molecule of glucose is broken into two molecules of pyruvic acid

cellular respiration

process that releases energy by breaking down glucose and other food molecules in the presence of oxygen

NAD+ (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide)

electron carrier involved in glycolysis

fermentation

process by which cells release energy in the absence of oxygen

anaerobic

process that does not require oxygen

aerobic

process that requires oxygen
