In this GCSE biology revision video our GCSE biology tutor discusses: Aerobic Respiration
Respiration is the process by which energy is released in glucose. In aerobic respiration, glucose and oxygen react to make carbon dioxide. In anaerobic respiration, lactic acid is produced. The specific site for aerobic respiration is mitochondria. Energy is made in the form of ATP. ATP is phosphorylated nucleotide. Respiratory quotient (RQ) is the ratio of the volumes of oxygen absorbed and carbon dioxide given off in respiration. By using Respiratory quotient (RQ), you can tell the type of fuel you are respiring. Lower Respiratory quotient (RQ) shows that body is using aerobic respiration while higher Respiratory quotient (RQ) shows that body is using the combination of aerobics and anaerobic system. A number of enzymes are involved in aerobic respiration and these enzymes are temperature and pH sensitive.
