What is the byproduct of respiration?
(dont read this if u dont want to)
there are different forms of respiration,
aerobic respiration= oxygen + glucose -> carbon dioxide+ water (+energy)
All forms of energy such as the fuels used in your cars are traceable to plants and sunlight Explain that statement?
The two products of respiration are carbon dioxide and water. The latter is commonly seen as byproduct, though it comes in (about) equal amounts. (In anaerobic respiration even carbon dioxide might not be a product at all: ) Example: microbial anaerobic 'methanogenesis' CH3COOH → CH4 + CO2 and CO2 + 4H2 → CH4 + 2H2O
When muscles are active they quickly exceed their oxygen supply. When this occurs they can no longer run aerobic respiration so the muscle begins to produce lactic acid as a byproduct of anaerobic respiration. When lactic acid builds up it irritates nerve receptors and results in the feeling of soreness.
Animals take in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide at each breath. Plants take in carbon dioxide and produce oxygen as the byproduct during the day and take in oxygen at night and produce carbon dioxide as the byproduct at night. That is why hospitals don't like too many live plants in a patient's room.
