    Abstract The effect of nature of substrates on the rate of cellular respiration in yeast was determined by using the Smith fermentation tube method. Mixtures of 15ml distilled H2O, 10% yeast suspension and 15ml of the following solutions (all at 10% concentration):1- starch, 2 – lactose, 3 – sucrose, 4 – glucose, 5 – fructose, 6 – distilled water , were poured in six smith fermentation tubes. Cotton balls were plugged in the openings of the tubes and the tubes were kept upright and observed for…

    Cellular Respiration Lab Report Wednesday 8:00 A.M. Lab March 2nd, 2005 I. Introduction In this lab we are measuring the amount of oxygen used in both germinating and non germinating peas. We are measuring the oxygen consumption by taking a reading of a respirometer submerged in two water baths. The first bath will be cold water and the second warm to determine the effect of temperatures on oxygen consumption. Our negative control will be glass beads to measure to increase or decrease…

    Cellular Respiration is part of the metabolism of organisms, it provides the energy for organisms’ basic life activity. The process of cellular respiration converts oxygen and water to glucose and carbon dioxide, and usually occurs inside of mitochondria. Thus the cellular respiration is closely related to the life of all organisms, especially the human. In a case study in cellular respiration, seven unrelated people died in five days, and the reason is unclear. However, all the victim had same…

    Cellular Respiration My hypothesis for the germinated pea experiment was that the level of aerobic respiration would increase as the temperature would increase. I also predicted that there would be an upper temperature limit. The experiment proved part of my hypothesis correct and part of it incorrect. I was correct in predicting that the rate would increase as the temperature increase, but I was incorrect in hypothesizing that there would be an upper limit. My hypothesis for the larvae experiment…

    Cellular Respiration Cellular respiration is a chemical process that produces adenosine triphosphate, or otherwise known as ATP for energy that is also needed to survive. It leaves waste products, carbon dioxide and water, which is needed for photosynthesis, a process that only plants use. Production of ATP through the process of cellular respiration occurs in the mitochondria of the cytosol inside plant and animal cells. Cellular respiration occurs in three stages, Glycolysis, which happens in…
