represent the difference between free energy content of the reaction and the free energy content of products?

The various degradative pathways of catabolism are convergent. That is, many hundreds of different proteins, polysaccharides, and lipids are broken down into relatively few catabolic end products. The hundreds of anabolic pathways,however, are divergent. That is, the cell uses relatively few biosynthetic precursor molecules to synthesize a vast number of different proteins, polysaccharides, and lipids.

Reaction for respiration is a catabolic process. It is where organic compounds are broken into simpler substances through the transfer of electrons.

Catabolism is when the molecules are broken down and energy is released. Cellular respiration breaks down large molecules, like glucose, and store the energy in the form of ATP. Therefore, cellular respiration is catabolic.
