Aerobic and Anaerobic Respiration
C6H12O6 + O2 → 6CO2 + 6H2O + 36ATP(energy)
Anaerobic – often called fermentation. This process represents the fermentation process eg yeast fermentation.
C6H12O6 → 2C2H5OH + 2CO2 +2ATP(energy)
Glucose ethanol + carbon dioxide
Aerobic respiration also occurs in muscle cells when there is a shortage of oxygen. This results in the formation of lactic acid. A build up of lactic acid causes the burning sensation we feel when we are exercising.
C6H12O6 → 2C3H6O3 + 2ATP
Glucose Lactic acid
