Target Language or Knowledge:

Compare and contrast the two types of respiration. Your answer should: • Describe both types of respiration. • Discuss the similarities and differences between the two types of respiration. • State the amount of energy produced by each type of respiration. The answer: Aerobic respiration uses oxygen to release lots of energy / ATP Compared to anaerobic respiration, which does not use oxygen and releases only a small amount of energy. Both aerobic and anaerobic respiration release energy for the mammal to use to carry out its life processes such as movement and reproduction, from the glucose they eat. Both types of cellular respiration occur inside the cell and require the raw material glucose, which they get from eating and digesting food. These two processes are different however, as aerobic respiration requires oxygen as a raw material to produce the maximum amount of energy (ATP) possible from one glucose molecule. In comparison, anaerobic respiration is where oxygen is not required or used to break down the glucose to release energy for the animal. However in contrast to aerobic respiration, only a small amount of energy is produced during anaerobic cellular respiration from one glucose molecule.

Aerobic energy anaerobic oxygen small energy life movement reproduction glucose cell glucose digesting oxygen maximum ATP anaerobic not release aerobic small glucose
