2

Without oxygen, what would happen to our muscles?

Without oxygen, our muscles would shut down.

New cards
3

What is cellular respiration?

Cellular respiration is the process of cells releasing the chemical energy stored in foods in the presence of O2.

New cards
4

What is the overall equation for cellular respiration?

C6H12O6 + 6O2 becomes 6CO2 + 6H2O + ATP

New cards
5

What are the reactants of cellular respiration?

C6H12O6 (glucose), 6O2 (oxygen)

New cards
6

What are the products of cellular respiration?

6CO2 (carbon dioxide), 6H2O (water), ATP (energy)

New cards
7

Besides glucose, what other kinds of molecules can be used in cellular respiraton?

Besides glucose, cellular respiration can burn carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

New cards
8

What is the relationship between cellular respiration and breathing?

Cellular respiration requires a cell to exchange gases with its surroundings. Breathing exchanges these gases between the blood and outside air.

New cards
9

What are the 3 main stages of cellular respiration?

The 3 main stages are glycolysis, the Krebs cycle (Citric Acid Cycle), and the electron transport chain (ETC).

New cards
10

Where does cellular respiration occur?

Cellular respiration occurs in the mitochondria.

New cards
11

Where does glycolysis occur?

Glycolysis occurs in the cytoplasm outside of the mitochondria (its products enter the mitochondria, however, when cellular respiration takes place).

New cards
12

Where does the Krebs cycle occur?

The Krebs cycle occurs in the matrix of the mitochondria.

New cards
13

Where does the ETC occur?

The ETC occurs in the cristae (folds in the inner membrane of the mitochondria).

New cards
14

Is glycolysis aerobic or anaerobic?

Anaerobic (doesn't require oxygen).

New cards
15

What are the reactants of glycolysis?

C6H12O6 (glucose), 2 ATP, 2 NAD+

New cards
16

What are the products of glycolysis?

2 pyruvic acid, 2 ATP, 2 NADH

New cards
17

How many ATP molecules are needed to start glycolysis?

2

New cards
18

How many ATP molecules are produced in glycolysis?

2

New cards
19

What is the overall net gain of ATP for every molecule of glucose that goes through glycolysis?

2

New cards
20

Are the Krebs cycle and the ETC aerobic or anaerobic?

Aerobic (require oxygen).

New cards
21

What are the reactants of the Krebs cycle?

2 pyruvic acids, ADP, NAD+, FAD+

New cards
22

What are the products of the Krebs cycle?

6CO2 (byproduct), 2 ATP, NADH, FADH

New cards
23

What reactants of the Krebs cycle are products of glycolysis?

Pyruvic acid and NAD+

New cards
24

What reactants of the Krebs cycle are products of the ETC?

FAD+

New cards
25

Where does the 6CO2 produced by the Krebs cycle go?

Leaves as a byproduct.

New cards
26

Where does the 2 ATP produced by the Krebs cycle go?

Throughout the cell to fuel various cellular functions.

New cards
27

Where does the NADH and FADH produced by the Krebs cycle go?

They go to the ETC.

New cards
28

What are the reactants of the ETC?

6O2, NADH, FADH2

New cards
29

Where does the 6O2 that goes into the ETC come from?

It is inhaled and enters from outside.

New cards
30

Where does the NADH and FADH that go into the ETC come from?

They come from the Krebs cycle.

New cards
31

What are the products of the ETC?

6H2O (byproduct), 32 ATP, NAD+, FAD+

New cards
32

Where does the 6H2O produced by the ETC go?

Leaves as a byproduct.

New cards
33

Where does the NAD+ and the FAD+ produced by the ETC go?

They go to glycolysis and the Krebs cycle.

New cards
34

How does 6H2O form during the ETC?

6H2O forms during the ETC when O2 (from outside) and H+ ions (carried by NADH and FADH), combine.

New cards
35

What is the total energy yield of cellular respiration?

36 ATP

New cards
36

What percentage of the total energy of glucose does cellular respiration represent?

The percentage of the total energy of glucose that cellular respiration represents is 36%.

New cards
37

What happens to the remaining 64% of energy from glucose that is not used in cellular respiration?

The remaining 64% of energy from glucose that is not used in cellular respiration is released as heat.

New cards
38

Describe the connection between photosynthesis and cellular respiration.

Photosynthesis removes CO2 from the atmosphere and turns it into glucose and O2. Cellular respiration uses that O2 to release energy from food and CO2, which plants then use in order for photosynthesis to take place.
