Resource summary

2.8 Cell Respiration
1 Nature of Science
1.1 Ethics of scientific research
1.1.1 Large scale of food plants for biofuels and the resulting impact on food prices
1.1.2 Respirometer The use of invertebrates has ethical implications An alkali is used to absorb CO2 so reductions in volume are due to O2 use Respiration rates in germinating seeds
2 Definition
2.1 It is the controlled release of energy from organic compounds to produce ATP
2.1.1 ATP from cell respiration is immediately available as a source of energy in the cell Glucose Aerobic cell respiration With oxygen Large yield of ATP Mitochondria Carbon dioxide + Water Anaerobic cell respiration Without oxygen Small yield of ATP Humans Lactic acid Maximize the power of muscle contractions Yeasts Baking Fermentation Carbon dioxide Ethanol
