Resource summary

Respiration In Cells
  1. Blood pumped around the body by the heart (through arteries and capillaries) for the diffusion of glucose and oxygen to the cells.
    1. Glucose in the blood
      1. Digestion and absorption (e.g. amino acids and glucose)
        1. Food
      2. Oxygen in the blood
        1. Breathing and gas exchange in the lungs.
          1. Oxygen in the air
      3. Carbon dioxide and water leave the cells as waste products.
        1. Blood returns to heart through veins.
        2. Energy is for moving, growing and keeping warm.
          1. The word equation for aerobic respiration is: glucose+oxygen=carbon dioxide+water+energy
