Exergonic and endergonic reactions 1. Exergonic Reactions Ex. Burning glucose Glucose + Oxygen -> CO2 + H2O + E 2. Endergonic Reactions Engergy + Reactants->Product Ex. Photosynthesis ATP Powers cellular work by coupling energonic reactions to endergonic reactions Cell does three main types of work -Mechanical -Transport -Chemical Glycolysis Glycolysis occurs in cytoplasm of a cell Does not require oxygen Splits glucose Fermentation

Unformatted text preview: Fermentation enables some cells to produce ATP without the use of oxygen Goal: -> Alcohol fermenation Lactic acid fermentation Cellular Respiration Occurs in mitochondria Requires oxygen Completes breakdown of glucose 3 Stages 1. Formation of acetyl-CoA 2. Krebs cycle 3. Electron transport chain Fermentation vs. Cellular Respiration Both produce ATP by harvesting chemical energy of food Both use glycolysis to break down glucose into pyruvate...
