Cellular Respiration Webquest Worksheet (from: http://zunal.com/webquest.php?user=19049)
Directions: Answer in your own words behind or under the questions. Do not copy and paste unless told to do so and then use quotes.
Part I. Process Overview
http://staff.jccc.net/PDECELL/cellresp/respintro.html Read the entire page! These questions are not in order! How is cellular respiration like combustion (burning)? [2nd paragraph] Its releasing energy. How is cellular respiration unlike combustion? The molecules from which we harvest energy give up their energy in a controlled fashion rather than all at once as what happens in a fire. What is the point of cellular respiration? To harvest electrons from organic compounds. What is ATP? Organic compounds such as glucose and use that energy to make a molecule. Copy the picture of its molecular formula, copy the web page address and put it next to the picture. [pic] http://staff.jccc.net/PDECELL/cellresp/respintro.html Write the general formula for aerobic respiration. [You may copy but again you must have the web page next to it.] [pic] http://staff.jccc.net/PDECELL/cellresp/respintro.html Why is glycolysis considered an ancient process? It’s the first step of cell respiration and we believe it arose in the early life of Earth’s revolution.
