Cellular respiration is represented by the chemical formula C6H12 + 6O2 = 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy (as ATP). Written in word form, the formula is "glucose + oxygen = carbon dioxide + energy (as ATP)". "ATP" stands for "adeno... 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

The chemical equation of cellular respiration is that C6H12O6 + 6O2 becomes 6CO2 + 6H20 + energy. Expressed in words, this equation means that glucose and oxygen react to create carbon dioxide, water and energy. Both sug... More » Science Human Anatomy
