During respiration (plants and animals) energy is released from sugar (glucose) by a series of chemical reactions. The sugar is broken down into carbon dioxide and water in a process which uses oxygen. Respiration is the chemical opposite of photosynthesis because it releases energy, using up food and oxygen and producing carbon dioxide. Photosynthesis requires engery (light) and produces food using up carbon dioxide and producing oxygen. Respiration is the release of energy from food. Breathing is the process of obtaining oxygen and removing carbon dioxide.

What happens during cellular respiration?

Short Answer: In cellular respiration Oxygen and Glucose, or C6H12O6, are broken down and used to produce ATP, adenosine triphosphate, CO2, and water. Long Answer: Glyco

What happens during cell respiration?

During Cellular Respiration , sugar is broken down to CO2 and H2O, and in the process, ATP is made that can then be used for cellular work. The overall reaction for cel

What happens during respiration and photosynthesis?

  In photosynthesis, light energy is used in order to make organic food molecules for plants to eat. In cellular respiration, glucose is converted into energy (ATP) so the

What do plants take in during respiration?

During Day time plants inhale Carbon-di-oxide and exhale Oxygen because they need it for photosynthesis while at night they inhale Oxygen and Exhale Carbon-di-oxide.

What is plant respiration and where does it happen?

Respiration is the chemical reaction that breaks down nutrient molecules (e.g glucose) in living organisms to release energy. When a plant respires it is opposite to when a hu
