COMPARISON BETWEEN ENERGY OUTPUT IN AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION

COMPARISON BETWEEN ENERGY OUTPUT IN AEROBIC AND ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION
Aerobic respiration results in the formation of simple inorganic molecules, water and carbon (Iv) oxide as the by¬products.
These cannot be broken down further. A lot of energy is produced.
When a molecule of glucose is broken down in the presence of oxygen, 2880 KJ of energy are produced (38 molecules of ATP).
In anaerobic respiration the by products are organic compounds.
These can be broken down further in the presence of oxygen to give more energy.
Far less energy is thus produced.

APPLICATION OF ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION IN INDUSTRY AND AT HOME INDUSTRY

APPLICATION OF ANAEROBIC RESPIRATION IN INDUSTRY AND AT HOME INDUSTRY
Making of beer and wines.
Ethanol in beer comes from fermentation of sugar (maltose) in germinating barley seeds.
Sugar in fruits is broken down anaerobically to produce ethanol in wines.
In the dairy industry, bacterial fermentation occurs in the production of several dairy products such as cheese, butter and yoghurt.
