Anaerobic and Aerobic Respiration
- Cells can use anaerobic respiration, which occurs without the presence of oxygen, to break down sugars and produce energy.
- Contrast this with aerobic respiration, which uses oxygen to make energy and is extremely efficient.
- The process through which organisms convert fuel, such as fats and sugars, into chemical energy is known as aerobic respiration.
- Anaerobic respiration, in contrast, doesn't require oxygen.
- All cells use respiration to convert fuel into energy that can drive cellular functions.
Anaerobic respiration occurs in the absence of ____? (A) Oxygen (B) Ozone (C) Carbon monoxide (D) Carbon dioxide
Oxygen deprivation results in anaerobic respiration. The dietary molecules are broken down, and a sufficient amount of energy is released without oxygen.
