what is cellular respiration?
the process of breaking down food to produce energy in the form of ATP
the process of breathing
the process of cells moving in the body
what are the types of respiration?
Anaerobic respiration is the most efficient type of respiration
what is the aerobic respiration equation?
glucose -------> carbon dioxide + lactic acid + ATP + water

Aerobic respiration produces a lot of energy in the form of ATP
what is the organelle responsible for respiration
What are the three structures of the respiration organelle?
cristae - folded inner membrane
stroma - fluid
matrix - fluid
grana - stack of thylakoids
what are the factors that affect respiration
