is respiration real? Watch
I just started AS and my biology teacher said that everything we were taught about respiration is a lie and that oxygen and glucose don't react to make energy. I looked online but couldn't find anything, what did she mean?
Yeh i just think she means that its a hell lot more complicated than the oversimplified statement that glucose plus O2 = energy
If so, could you explain so I have some extra knowledge before we go over this
Glucose is broken down into pyruvae which enters the krebs ccycle, oxidation reactions occurs, nad to nadh etc etc ,
its better to wait rlly
Here is a video about the process to an A level standard (even then there is more you learn at a uni level standard).
Use this: http://www.biologymad.com/master.htm.../a2biology.htm
Even what you learn at a-level is a simplification.
Pretty sure respiration is only for A2, no?
