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

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
