Formal Lab Report Introduction:
This lab addresses how people’s metabolism directly affects their performance when faced with a situation that involves exercise for one, and two minutes. Using and understanding Cellular Respiration is something you will need to learn before you can fully grasp this Formal (Lee, Susan. Bio Home. N.p., 15 Feb. 2005.

Lab Report. First of all, you will need to know the equation for Cellular Respiration; Drayton, (Josh D. About Biology. About.com, 29 June 2007. Web. 7 Dec. 2011. <http://biology.about.com/od/cellularprocesses/a/cellrespiration.htm>.)
C2H12O6 + 6 H2O --- 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + 36 ATP (Energy)
There are three total steps that Cellular Respiration goes through. The first step macromolecules into simple subunits, the second step is the breakdown of those newly made subunits. The second step changes those subunits into acetyl CoA, this is needed help make ATP and NADH. Step three is the final step, witch turn CoA into CO2 this is almost a short cut from electronic transport.
This is the equation for Cellular Respiration, basically all this means is that it requires energy to create energy. So what the lab does, is determines how much energy it takes from person to person to exercise and how CO2 production, Breathing Rate, and Pulse Rate fluctuate. In America we are so concerned about looks and fitness, but if this is true than why is there such a problem with obesity.
Well, if you read, and understand what has been done in this lab, than you will be able to adjust your metabolism so as to help decrease, (or increase) your overall weight. This lab does not help you change your metabolism, but shows the current average of the class. By conducting this experiment, I believe that the obvious with show. That if you exercise for 1 minute and then 2
