Whats the site of aerobic respiration?
Mitochondria are the main sites. But glycolisis takes place in cytoplasm
Aerobic respiration is respiration which uses oxygen. The equation for aerobic respiration is: glucose + oxygen -----> energy + water + carbon dioxide Using the chemical formulae this is: C6H12O6 + 6O2 -----> energy + 6H2O + 6CO2 For more information search the site for aerobic respiration.

The Mitochondria are the site of aerobic cellular respiration because of the mitochondria's unique double bilayer, similar to the chloroplast. Mitochondria have a channel protein called ATP Synthase on their bilayer which, in coordination with cellular respiration, allows ADP to be phosphorylated into ATP, which is this main end goal of Cellular Respiration.
