Respiration mindmap
1 Two different types
1.1 Aerobic respiration
1.1.1 Uses oxygen
1.1.2 glucose+oxygen---->carbon dioxide+water+(energy)
1.1.3 Takes place in the mitochondia Which is folded to increase surface area Which increases the area on which the cellular enzymes can respire
1.2 Anaerobic respiration
1.2.1 Doesn't use oxygen
1.2.2 glucose---->lactic acid(+energy) Is when the glucose is not broken down entirely and therefore lactic acid is produced
1.2.3 Is what happens when someone exercises too intensely and muscles in use cannot keep up with he exercise rate so they start to not entirely break down the glucose you might feel it when your muscles suddenly feel lethargic Called muscle fatigue
1.2.4 Oxygen debt Is what is happening when you pant after thorough exercise When you exercise too fast for your circulatory system to keep up actic acid is produced but the but the body must get rid of this build up in the muscles So the body keeps you panting in order to make up the lost oxygen as anaerobic respiration is no where near as efficient as aerobic respiration Therefore oxygen debt is the amount of oxygen needed to break down the lactic acid that has built up into carbon dioxide and water The bigger the oxygen debt the longer you will be puffing and panting for
1.2.5 Not as efficient as aerobic respiration
2 Reasons for respiration
2.1 Keep body temperature
2.1.1 37oC
2.1.2 Using energy made from respiration
2.2 Muscles
2.2.1 Growth
2.2.2 Contraction
2.2.3 Uses energy from respiration to carry out such processes
2.3 Plants use this energy to make sugars, nitrates and nutrients into amino acids
