Does cellular respiration require oxygen?
What process breaks down sugars to make ATP?
What process uses ATP to make sugars?
What are the reactants of cellular respiration?
oxygen and glucose
to loosen or break
Why do some cells have more mitochondria than others?
because they are more active and require more energy
Why is cellular respiration an aerobic process?
it requires oxygen
What are the folds inside the mitochondria called?
What macromolecule made by plants is "burned" in the mitochondria?
When yeast ferments the sugar in bread mixture, what is produced that causes the bread to rise?
Why do organisms need a way of storing energy?
because a cell can't always immediately use all the energy it gets
where is energy stored in ATP
