Aerobic respiration is a chemical reaction that requires oxygen to generate adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, a chemical that cells use for energy. It is also referred to as intracellular energy transfer. More » Science Biology Cells

The simplified formula for aerobic cellular respiration is C6H12O6 (s) + 6 O2 (g) → 6 CO2 (g) + 6 H2O (l) + energy. The cellular respiration process consumes one molecule of glucose, and turns it into adenosine triphosph... More » Science Chemistry Chemical Equations

Respiration is a chemical reaction that can be expressed by the equation C6H12O6 plus 6O2 yields 6CO2 and 6H2O. This generally states that glucose and oxygen yield carbon dioxide and water. An aerobic reaction of this na... More » Science Chemistry
