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 to diaphragm during respiration?

The diaphragm muscles contract and relax pulling the diaphragm down and then releasing it.  When we inhale, our diaphragm muscles contracts and flattens. When we exhale, they

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 happens in plants at night they respire or they transpire?

  Plants do respire at night. It does not require light to take place. This is a process of releasing energy, kind of the opposite to photosynthesising. Photosynthesis is

What happens during respiration?

Respiration is the transport of oxygen to cells within tissues and  the transport of carbon dioxide in the opposite direction.

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 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
