This is simply the entire process which is talking about breathing in oxygen. This oxygen breaks down food substances in the system to release energy that enables the system to work perfectly.
More so, it can still be considered as the exchange of atmospheric gases i.e. Oxygen and Carbon dioxide in both plants and animals.
This topic is very good and I advice students to study it since it is mostly used by the Cameroon GCE board, to alert the science students to know what is keeping them alive. Respiration is a big test to investigate if an organism is alive or dead.
At the end of this topic the following must be taken into consideration;
Definition of respiration and the equation for respiration.
Mechanism of respiration
Aerobic respiration and its equation
Anaerobic respiration and its equation
Differences between aerobic and anaerobic respiration
I am most delighted because I have learned alot of things about Respiration. I hated Respition and never understood it all long when my teacher taught me in school but hopefully and thanks to Ohipopo.org (100% ) I have patiently learnt it well.
