What happens during plant respiration?
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.

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… relax and arch upwards.
Cells take the carbohydrates into their cytoplasm, and through a complex series of metabolic processes, they break down the carbohydrates and release the energy.
Respiration breaks down the sugar inside its cells.
plants respire during the day as well the rate of respiration is lower than the rate of photosynthesis in the day
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.
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 …the preparation of the dinner, respiration is the dining process and the belching and flatulence that follows. When a plant respires, it releases carbon dioxide ( at a lower rate than it takes in ), oxygen, heat, water. It occurs on a cellular level with all living things. Transpiration, on the other hand is the process by which plants release water through their leaves, stems, flowers and roots. It occurs during the process of photosynthesis and gets a break at nightime as plants need light to photosynthesize.
Respiration is the transport of oxygen to cells within tissues and the transport of carbon dioxide in the opposite direction.
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…lular respiration: (does this reaction look familiar? Overall, it is the reverse reaction of photosynthesis, but chemically, the steps involved are very different.). C6H12O6 + 6O2 -------------------> 6CO 2 + 6H2O + ~38 ATP.
During respiration, cell break down simple food molecules such as sugar and release the energy they contain.
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…lysis -> Kreb's Cycle -> Electron Transport Chain -> Chemiosmosis Glycolysis: Glucose + 2 ATP -> 2 Pyruvate + 4 ATP+2 NADH Glucose is ingested by the organism and brought into the cell through active transport. The Glucose molecule is phosphorylated, that is a phospate group is attached to both ends, and pulled apart. The phosphate group is then detatched from the split glucose and attached to ADP by an enzyme, forming ATP and Pyruvate. Kreb's Cycle: 2 Pyruvate+ 2 H2O -> 8 NADH + 2 FADH2 + 2 ATP + 4 CO2 Pyruvate is oxydized to form Acytl-CoA which is inserted into the Kreb's Cycle. This action produces 2 NADH molecules. When in the Kreb's Cycle, the Acytl-CoA is changed, removing 2 Carbon atoms in the form of CO2, and generating 1 ATP for each pyruvate that entered the cycle. Hydrogen atoms are removed during this cycle and attached to the electron carriers NAD and FAD for use in the Electron transport Chain. Electron Tranasport Chain and Chemiosmosis: 10 NADH + 2 FADH2 + 3 O2 -> 34 ATP + 6 H2O NADH and FADH2 are put through a series of enzymes where the Hydrogen atoms are removed to form an Electron Gradient. This gradient drives movement through a proton 'pump' that produces energy from the flow of the atoms. Each NADH that enters the ETC will produce 3 ATP molecules. Each FADH2 will produce 2 ATP. This answer is not exhaustive. For the full process, including all of the enzymes utilized, please talk to a biology professor or look into the purchase of a molecular biology text.
Energy is burned or is used up during this process. During cellular respiration, molecules of glucose are broken down in order to convert the stored energy into a usable for…m of energy.
