Why is cellular respiration important for organisms? (i.e. what does it do for [us])?
What are the starting reagents and finished products in cellular respiration? Write in the form of a chemical equation.
What is the energy currency for biological systems? (Hint: not glucose)
Other than usable energy, what else does cellular respiration produce?
How many ATP can cellular respiration produce in ideal circumstances?
What is the first stage of cellular respiration? Break down the name to help yourself remember it.
How many carbons are in a single glucose molecule?
How many carbons are in the compounds that immediately result from glycolysis?
How many ATPs are required for glycolysis? How many are produced through glycolysis? What is the net gain in ATPs?
Does glycolysis require oxygen?
What is the next step of cellular respiration if oxygen is present?
Write down the definitions of the words “aerobic” and “anaerobic.”
What is the net gain of ATPs from the Kreb’s cycle? Note that the Kreb’s cycle is also called the “citric acid cycle,” which is what it is called in your textbook.
What is the next step in cellular respiration? Is it an aerobic process? How many ATPs can it produce?
If oxygen is not available, what occurs following glycolysis?
What are the two types of fermentation (they are named after their byproducts)?
Which organisms use which type of fermentation?
If oxygen is available, which component of cellular respiration yields the most energy?
Do plants undergo cellular respiration? The answer to this question is not in the video.
Draw a flow diagram that shows the processes of cellular respiration with and without oxygen.
