Overview of Cellular Respiration
For Questions 5–10, complete each statement by writing the correct word or words.
The equation that summarizes cellular respiration, using chemical formulas, is
6O2 + C6H12O6
6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy
If cellular respiration took place in just one step, most of the engery
would be lost in the
form of light and heat
Cellular respiration begins with a pathway called glycolyis which takes place in the
of the cell.
At the end of glycolysis, about 90
percent of the chemical energy is locked in the bonds of
the pyruvic acid
Cellular respiration continues in the mitochondria
of the cell with the krebs cycle
electron transport chain.
