Cellular Respiration FAQs:


Q: Is a Cellular Respiration a set of metabolic reactions and processes that take place in the cells of organisms to convert biochemical energy from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate?

A: Yes, and then release waste products.

Q: Is a Cellular Respiration considered an exothermic redox reaction which releases heat?

A: Yes.

Q: Is a Cellular Respiration a combustion reaction?

A: Yes, and it clearly does not resemble one when it occurs in a living cell because of the slow release of energy from the series of reactions.

Q: Is a Cellular Respiration the process by which biological fuels are oxidised in the presence of an inorganic electron acceptor to produce large amounts of energy?

A: Yes, and to drive the bulk production of ATP.

Q: Is a Cellular Respiration made by oxidative phosphorylation?

A: Yes.
