Cellular Respiration

 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...

Lab 8 Cellular Respiration and Fermentation Objectives: 1. Observe the effects of cellular respiration on temperature in a closed system. 2. Investigate carbon dioxide production in both germinating pea seeds and crickets. 3. Perform an investigative study of the rate of cellular respiration in both pea seeds and crickets at various temperatures. 4. Compare the alcoholic fermentation of glucose, sucrose, and starch by yeast. Introduction All organisms must have a continual...

Cellular Respiration

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...

Cellular Respiration

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 OVERALL EQUATION: C6H12O6(aq) + 6O2(g) -> 6CO2(g) + 6H2O(l) 3 OVERALL GOALS: 1. Break bonds between the 6-carbon molecules of glucose – results in 6 CO2 molecules 2. Move hydrogen atom electrons from glucose to O2, forms 6 H2O molecules 3. Trap as much free energy released as possible in the form of ATP Stage 1: Glycolysis Cytoplasm, 10 reactions, anaerobic Stage 2: Pyruvate Oxidation Mitochondrial matrix, 1 step process Stage 3: The Krebs Cycle Mitochondrial...

Analyzing the Rate of Cellular Respiration in Germinating and Non-germinating Black-eyed Peas I. Hypothesis If the cellular respiration rate of germinating black-eyed peas and non-germinating black-eyed peas is compared then the germinating black-eyed peas will have the higher respiration rate. II. Background Organisms need some sort of energy to facilitate their growth and development. Usually, this energy is in the form of adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. Cellular respiration is the process that...

 What Is Cellular Respiration and What Influences It’s Function? BSC 2010L 06/19/2013 Abstract: Eating is a basic essential of life that most people don’t pay much mind till they’re hungry. Eating is essential and very important for various reasons but one of the main reasons is for energy. Our bodies use a term called cellular respiration which is the process by which chemical energy of food is released and partially captured in the form of ATP or energy....
