cellular respiration
process that releases energy from food in the presence of oxygen
6O2 + C6H12O6 - - - 6CO2 +6H2O + Energy
formula for cellular respiration - Oxygen + Glucose ---- Carbon dioxide + Water + Energy
calorie
amount of energy needed to raise the temperatur of 1 gram of water 1 degree (unit)
ATP
energy made by cells using respiration
aerobic
cellular respiration that requires oxygen
anaerobic
does not require oxygen for cellular respiration
glycolysis
anaerobic part of cellular respiration because its final products are key reactants for the aerobic stage (takes place in mitochondria)
fermentation
anaerobic pathway makes it possible for the cell to keep glycolysis running creating ATP
krebs cycle
aerobic process for cellular respiration
stages of cellular respiration
glycolysis - krebs cycle - electron transport chain
electron transport chain
final stage of cellular respiration uses oxygen
pyruvic acid
chemical bond of a molecule formed during glycolysis
photosynthesis
the process by which plants, algae, and some bacteria use sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water to produce carbohydrates and oxygen
compare photosynthesis and cellular respiration
C6 H12 O6 yields O + H2O - photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and cellular C6 H12 O6 yields - CO2 + energy respiration puts it back. photosynthesis releases oxygen into the atmosphere and cellular respiration uses that oxygen to release energy from food
