Chapter 6 Cellular Respiration, My Review
=> asked by Eileen
Cellular Respiration-the release of the energy stored in food goes on inside the cells of both autotrophs and heterotrops. Organisms as diverse as plants, animals, and microorganisms show remarkable similarities in the way they obtain energy from food. This energy-releasing process is called the cellular respiraton.
In most organisms, respiration is carried on in the presence of free oxygen, or O2. Respiration requiring free oxygen is known as aerobic respiration.
In anaerobic respiration, the cell receives little of the chemical energy in the glucose.
Fermentation is when glycolysis is followed by the conversion of pyruvic acid to some end product with no further release of energy.about 3 years ago, by Eileen
