What affects the rate of
cellular respiration in
2.5mL yeast (1/2 tbsp)
20mL water (45 degrees
Celsius or 110 F.)
I. Glycolysis - The splitting of glucose into
2 three Carbon molecules called
Occurs in cytoplasm
NAD is reduced to
CO is released
2 ATP produced
Does NOT require
II. Anaerobic vs Aerobic
A. Anaerobic (w/o O )
Process by which pyruvate
is converted into either
alcohol and CO or lactic
Occurs in cytoplasm
H from NADH is
attached to pyruvate
Only 2 ATP are produced
Aerobic (with O )
Oxidative Respiration – process by which pyruvate is
broken down to form MOST of the energy which is
supplied to plants and animals
Occurs in mitochondria
Occurs in 2 major phases
Krebs Cycle 2 ATP are produced
Occurs in Matrix of Mitochondria
Electron Transport Chain 32 ATP are produced
Occurs in Inner Membrane of Mitochondria
Each Cell uses between 1-2 billion ATP/min.
How many ATP’s are used each minute by all
100 trillion cells in the body?
1 glucose = 686 Cal
1 ATP = 7 Cal
How efficient is aerobic respiration?
How does the efficiency of your cells compare
to the efficiency of an automobile that are only
25% efficient in converting chemical energy into
Sources of Energy for contraction
Glycolysis 2 ATP
Lactic Acid Fermentation 2 ATP
Aerobic Respiration 34 ATP
Creatine Phosphate (5x more than ATP)
(donates Phosphate to ADP ATP)
Exercise Requirements: 10 min. taps glycogen for
10-30 min. Cells use either glucose or fatty acids
Beyond 30 min. fatty acids are primary source
The amount of oxygen necessary to support the
conversion of lactic acid to glycogen
Oxygen lactic acid pyruvate ATP or
No Oxygen lactic acid build up
Inability of muscle to contract
Results from a deficit of ATP and/or accumulation
of lactic acid lowers pH

when you hear
What affects the rate of cellular
respiration in yeast?
Through a process called cellular respiration, the
cells of most organisms use oxygen to release the
energy that is stored in food molecules. Fungi use a
different process, called fermentation, that does
not use oxygen to release energy. During both
cellular respiration and fermentation, energy is
released when the chemical bonds that hold the
food molecules together are broken. All organisms
then use elements, such as carbon, to build their
own biological molecules. The molecules left after
these processes are waste products.
One of the waste products is carbon dioxide, a
molecule that contains carbon. As organisms conduct
cellular respiration or fermentation, they release waste
carbon dioxide as a gas into the atmosphere.
Photosynthetic organisms, such as plants, absorb this
carb dioxide and use it in photosynthesis. The carbon
gets incorporated into parts of the plant (for example,
as part of the starch in a potato) and may end being
consumed by yet another animal. The constant
cycling of carbon through organisms to the
atmosphere and back again is called carbon cycle.
