Mammoth Memory

To remember respiration uses Glucose

Respiration occurs in animals and plants.

C6H12O6 + 6O2 > 6CO2 + Energy + 6H2O

(Energy is produced in the form of ATP)

Memory aid to remember respiration in plants and animals uses glucose it needs to be replenished

In resting after perspiring (respiration) at the gym there is only one thing to do and that is to have a big drink of glucose to replenish the energy used. 

Respiration uses glucose.

NOTE

During days with light photosynthesis makes glucose, some of which is then used in respiration.

During cloudy days and the night when photosynthesis slows down or stops, respiration is still going on. This occurs in the mitochondria.

Glucose + O2 > CO2 + Energy (ATP) + H2O

NOTE

Respiration occurs in mitochondria to produce ATP. ATP is the energy that keeps humans alive. It’s the powerhouse to power existing cells and build new ones.
