Ch 9: Campbell Biology Chapter 9: Cellular Respiration and Fermentation

About This Chapter

The Cellular Respiration and Fermentation chapter of this Campbell Biology Companion Course helps students learn the essential lessons associated with cellular respiration and fermentation. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Cellular Respiration and Fermentation textbook chapter.

How It Works:

  • Identify the lessons in the Campbell Biology Cellular Respiration and Fermentation chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons with this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the cellular respiration and fermentation topics you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, rewatch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn:

  • The processes of anabolism and catabolism
  • What redox reactions are
  • What happens during cellular respiration
  • The steps in glycolysis
  • The products and steps of the citric acid cycle
  • Steps and products of the electron support chain
  • Kinds of fermentation

Anabolism and Catabolism: Definitions & Examples

1. Anabolism and Catabolism: Definitions & Examples

Metabolism breaks down large molecules like food into usable energy. This energy drives bodily processes critical to survival. In this video lesson, you will learn about the two forms of metabolism that break down and build up molecules and see examples of each.

Redox (Oxidation-Reduction) Reactions: Definitions and Examples

2. Redox (Oxidation-Reduction) Reactions: Definitions and Examples

This short video will explain oxidation-reduction reactions, or redox reactions for short. The focus is on how electrons are transferred during redox reactions. Learn some neat mnemonic devices to help you remember when an atom is oxidizing or reducing.

Redox Reactions & Electron Carriers in Cellular Respiration: Definitions and Examples

3. Redox Reactions & Electron Carriers in Cellular Respiration: Definitions and Examples

Redox reactions play an important role in cellular respiration. In this lesson, you will see how NAD and FAD are used as electron carriers to temporarily store energy during cellular respiration.

Glycolysis Pathway: Steps, Products & Importance

4. Glycolysis Pathway: Steps, Products & Importance

Cellular respiration creates chemical energy in the form of ATP from the food we eat and the air we breathe. In this lesson, we'll learn about the first part of this process, glycolysis.

The Citric Acid (Krebs) Cycle: Products and Steps

5. The Citric Acid (Krebs) Cycle: Products and Steps

In this lesson, we return to the process of cellular respiration for the second act of creating energy from food. In this act, products from glycolysis feed into the next stage, the citric acid cycle.

The Electron Transport Chain: Products and Steps

6. The Electron Transport Chain: Products and Steps

In this lesson, we'll learn about the finale of cellular respiration. The electron transport chain uses products from the first two acts of glycolysis and the citric acid cycle to complete the chemical reaction that turns our food into usable cellular energy.

Lactic Acid & Alcoholic Fermentation: Comparison, Contrast & Examples

7. Lactic Acid & Alcoholic Fermentation: Comparison, Contrast & Examples

When in an anaerobic environment, some cells can use glycolysis and fermentation to keep producing ATP. Lactic acid fermentation happens in our muscle cells when we are exercising feverishly, while alcoholic fermentation is used in yeast cells and is what leads to beer, bread, and wine.

Glycolysis & the Citric Acid Cycle

8. Glycolysis & the Citric Acid Cycle

How does food actually become energy? Through cellular respiration! In this lesson we will examine two main components of respiration and discover exactly how they break down food into useable energy.

Alcohol Fermentation: Definition, Equation & Process

9. Alcohol Fermentation: Definition, Equation & Process

Humans have benefited from the process of alcohol fermentation for thousands of years. Here, we will explore how this process works, its definition, and its chemical equation.
