What happens to energy lost during cellular respiration?
In the case of cellular respiration, the energy lost as heat helps keep your body temperature at 98.6 degrees F. Sometimes, it becomes necessary for the body to generate even more heat, for example during prolonged exposure to cold.
How does cellular respiration release energy?
Cellular respiration is the process by which individual cells break down food molecules, such as glucose and release energy. The process is similar to burning, although it doesn鈥檛 produce light or intense heat as a campfire does. This is because cellular respiration releases the energy in glucose slowly, in many small steps.
What is the cellular respiration equation?
Cellular Respiration Equation: C6H12O6 + 6 O2 鈫?6 CO2 + 6 H2O + 38*ATP. Cellular Respiration Equation: Every machine needs specific parts and fuel in order to function.
How many ATP does it take to start cellular respiration?
Cellular respiration takes two ATP to get the reaction started, but it releases much more energy in the form of ATP than it took in to begin the reaction. A net of about 36 molecules of ATP are produced from the three parts of cellular respiration, including: glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, and the electron transport chain.
