Aerobic Respiration :

Respiration that uses oxygen and anerobic is done without oxygen

New Answer :

Aerobic Respiration

Respiration That uses Oxygen to form Co2 , H2o and Energy is called Aerobic Respiration

The Equation is :

Food + O2 = Co2 + H2o + Energy

Anaerobic Respiration :

Respiration that Does not use Oxygen to Form : Co2 , Ethanol and Energy

The Equation is :

Glucose = Pyrovic Acid = Co2 + Ethanol + Energy

Here = is gives

and Ethanol = C2H5OH

Thanks hope this helped

Good Luck
Main diffenernce between the two is - Anaerobic respiration is without oxygen, Aerobic with oxygen
