I need help...-aerobic and aerobic respiration

Post by soluna » Wed May 24, 2006 11:19 pm

I dont really know what to do...

Constuct a table tocompare aerobic and aerobic respiration in terms of reactants, products, and ATP production.

The main difference would be amount of ATP create and the products created: 32 vs. 2 and atp vs. lactic acid.

I'm not sure about the amount of ATP created from anerobic and aerobic. You may want to compare notes.

Are you trying to get us to do your homework by asking for a sample you can copy down?

LOL!!!!

I'm not going to give you an answer however, I will point you in a direction where you can look-up an answer.

You can start off by going to http://www.wikipedia.org and typing in "cellular respiration"

(i checked it out and there is an article... I didn't read it, so I can't guarantee the accuracy)

AND.. you can double-check what you read online ...in your biology textbook (for accuracy)

buena suerte!

You will need the following information in your chart: Place of reaction, net ATP gain, terminal oxidant, reactants

basically aerobic respiration inovles the release of energy in the form of atp using oxygen. anaerobic repsiration happens when theres no or little oxygen leading to the production of lactic acid.

the lactic acid is the carried by the blood to the liver where its converted into chemical pyruvate and glycogen which can then be taken to respirting cells to store as glucose.
