Fermentation is the process that releases energy without using oxygen. In cellular respiration, anaerobic fermentation contrasts with aerobic cell respiration. Both processes convert glucose from food into adenosine trip... More »

The relationship between photosynthesis and cellular respiration is such that the products of one process are the reactants of the other. Photosynthesis is the process whereby carbon dioxide and water react, using energy... More »

Oxidative phosphorylation takes place in and around the membranes of mitochondria in eukaryotic cells. Oxidative phosphorylation is the process of generating adenosine triphosphate, the main energy currency of all cells,... More »

The balanced equation for photosynthesis is: 6CO2 + 6H2O + sunlight energy = C6H12O6 + 6O2 Photosynthesis can be represented using a chemical equation: Carbon dioxide + water + light energy gives a carbohydrate + oxygen. More »

One of the most common real life examples of a redox reaction is one that is necessary for life itself, in which a cell oxidizes glucose to carbon dioxide and reduces oxygen to water, providing energy through cellular re... More »

Coal formation begins with the decay of plants and animals in the absence of oxygen. Bacteria release oxygen and hydrogen and concentrate carbon. Impurities are removed over time, and the weight of sediment compresses th... More »
