The first stage is Glycolsis, which works anaerobicly and occurs in the Sarcoplasm (the cytoplasm of a muscle). This process happens happens in 10 stages where various, slight but important changes are made. In this process 4 ATP molecules are produced but 2 are used in the breakdown of glucose leaving a net gain of 2. Glucose is split to from 2 3-carbon sugars, which is then oxidised to form Pyruvate. At this point aerobic respiration meets anerobic respiration. The pyruvic acid is oxidised forming Acetyl Co A, a 2 carbon compound that can enter the kreb cycle. In this cycle Acetyl Co A combines with Oxaloacetic acid to form citric acid, a 6 carbon compound. This releases carbon dioxide which can be safely breathed out, it resynthesises a further 2 ATP and releases hydrogen which is taken by NAD to the electron transfer chain in the Mitochchondria. The electron transfer chain occurs in the Cristae of the Mitochondria (where the enzymes and proteins for this chain are attached to the inner wall). NAD and FAD combine with the hydrogen ions made during glycolsis to make NADH and FADH. They then donate electrons to the first carrier molecule of the electron transfer chain. The electrons pass through the chain by a series of redox (reduction and oxidation) reactions. The energy from the electrons and the hydrogen powers ATPsynthase which uses ADP and phosphate to resynthesise ATP. At the end of this chain electrons combine with protons and Oxygen to form water.

Thanks for the feedback!
oxygen powers this system as it is designed for long events eg marathon running

The Aerobic Energy system works via the breakdown of carbohydrates by oxygen. The by products of this process are water (in sweat) carbon dioxide (in breath) and heat (p…roduced by the muscles).

MOST for example: ball games (not billiard..), running (not sprint) martial arts, rowing swimming, dancing on ice.... anything that takes a persistent effort in gymnastics: …rings. sports that DOESNT have to use aerobic breathing or use anaerobic system for example: weightlifting, chess, shooting, cliff diving, 100 meter sprint, 200 meter sprint, driving. aerobic means using oxygen oxygen+glucose-----> carbon dioxide+water+energy so football boxing long distance running tennis bicycle skating swimming basketball skiing dancing
It is long term. That's what you'll use after you ATP-PC and your anaerobic systems.
the aerobic system is a long term energy system. It requires oxygen to ensure energy is available for the re-systhesis of ATP.It provides energy for low-moderate intensity exe…rcise - 90 seconds plus ..... Goes through a number of chemical reactions - produces carbon dioxide and water
when the carbohydrates are not available
because it uses more oxygen as the muscles need it when in action :L
ATP is the type of energy used in aerobic respiration
The aerobic system is used for low intensity, high duration sports such as long distance running, cycling, and many multi-sport events like a triathlon or ironman.
It transfers oxygen into the bloodstream with the takes it to our muscles with use it through cell respiration creating energy
Aerobic system loose concept. what exactly did you mean by this expression?
The amount of oxygen you're able to bring in.
