About This Chapter
Overview of Cellular Respiration - Chapter Summary
In this chapter on cellular respiration, there are engaging lessons that include a discussion on long-term carbon storage. You can also review major types of cellular respiration. After going through the lessons, you should be able to do the following:
- List the steps involved in aerobic respiration
- Provide examples of anaerobic respiration
- Differentiate between aerobic and anaerobic respiration
- Explain how breathing and cellular respiration are similar
- Discuss the impact that carbon dioxide has on the environment
- Recall how the carbon cycle functions on a global scale
A short quiz is available to test your knowledge of each lesson, and the quizzes can be printed. The quizzes link back to specific topics in the video, so if you get a question wrong you can quickly go back and review that particular topic. You can submit questions to our instructors if there are any areas you don't understand.
1. Aerobic Respiration: Definition, Steps, Products & Equation
Aerobic respiration is the process most living things undergo to use food energy. Here, we will investigate the definition, the steps of the process, what goes in and what comes out of the process, and the chemical formula. Get ready to breathe!
2. Anaerobic Respiration: Definition, Equation & Examples
Many organisms are capable of undergoing anaerobic respiration. In some cases, it's a 'backup plan' when oxygen is absent, and in other cases, they thrive that way. Here we will investigate what anaerobic respiration is, the equation and examples of it at work.
3. Differences Between Aerobic vs. Anaerobic Respiration
In this lesson, you'll learn the difference between the two major types of cellular respiration: aerobic and anaerobic. We'll go through the basics of each type of respiration, what organisms use them, and what products they create.
4. Compare & Contrast Breathing & Cellular Respiration
This lesson is on breathing and cellular respiration. Today we'll learn the details of each process and look at key differences and similarities. Then test your knowledge with a short quiz.
5. Carbon Dioxide's Impact on the Environment
In this video lesson, we will learn about carbon dioxide and its effect on the environment. We will learn about its role in photosynthesis and the role it plays in global warming and ocean chemistry. A short quiz will test our knowledge.
6. The Carbon Cycle and Long-Term Carbon Storage
All living organisms have a role in the carbon cycle. Do you know you understand how humans, animals and plants use carbon? This lesson will introduce you to the carbon cycle and explain how it functions on a global scale.
