Cellular respiration is the process which cells get their energy in the form of ATP. This process is broken into several categories, Aerobic, Anaerobic respiration and fermentation (Bauman, Machunis-Masuoka, & Montgomery, 2017) . Aerobic respiration requires the cell to be able to utilize oxygen in order to create ATP, with oxygen acting as the final electron acceptor. This process is more efficient in creating ATP molecules, as it yields 38 ATP (prokaryotes) or 36 ATP (eukaryotes) at the end of its cycle starting from one sugar molecule (Bauman, Machunis-Masuoka, & Montgomery, 2017) . This is due aerobic respiration having a krebs cycle, which yields the high amount of ATP (Bauman, Machunis-Masuoka, & Montgomery, 2017) . Also called Aerobes, an example would be Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacterium found in mostly in soil and causes infections with patients with weakened immune systems in hospitals (Bauman, Machunis-Masuoka, & Montgomery, 2017) Anaerobic Respiration, does not require oxygen to be the final electron acceptor to

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
