Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is Respiration?

    • A.

      Respiration is the chemical reaction that takes place in the cells.

    • B.

      Respiration is breathing

    • C.

      Respiration is anaerobic

    • D.

      Respiration is the process where energy is produced

    • E.

      Respiration is oxygen

    Correct Answer
    D. Respiration is the process where energy is produced
    Explanation
    Respiration is the process where energy is produced. This is because respiration is a chemical reaction that occurs in the cells, and it is through this reaction that cells convert glucose and oxygen into carbon dioxide, water, and ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the energy currency of the cell. Therefore, respiration is responsible for generating the energy that cells need to carry out their functions.

    What is the equation for anaerobic respiration

    • A.

      Carbon dioxide+energy

    • B.

      Glucose_ethanol+carbon dioxide+energy

    • C.

      Lactic acid+Glucose

    • D.

      Hydroxide+ glucose

    • E.

      Carbon dioxide+glucose

    Correct Answer
    B. Glucose_ethanol+carbon dioxide+energy
    Explanation
    The equation for anaerobic respiration is glucose_ethanol+carbon dioxide+energy. Anaerobic respiration is a process that occurs in the absence of oxygen and is commonly found in microorganisms such as yeast. During anaerobic respiration, glucose is broken down into ethanol and carbon dioxide, releasing energy in the process. This type of respiration is less efficient than aerobic respiration but allows organisms to still produce energy when oxygen is not available.

  • 3. 

    What is the equation for aerobic respiration (USE CAPITAL LETTERS)

    Correct Answer
    C6H12O6+6O2 = 6CO2+6H2O+ENERGY ​ O+energy
    Explanation
    Aerobic respiration is a process in which glucose reacts with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide, water, and energy. This reaction takes place within cells, providing the energy necessary for various biological functions. It's an essential process for the survival of most living organisms, supplying the ATP needed for energy-intensive activities.

    How is lactic acid used?

    Correct Answer
    Its used by combining oxygen from brething
  • 5. 

    What is Fermination?

    Correct Answer
    Fermination is the process glucose+yeats is broken down to alcohol
  • 6. 

    What is another word for "breathing in"

    Correct Answer
    inhaling
    Explanation
    The word "inhaling" is another term used to describe the process of "breathing in". When we inhale, we take in air or a specific substance into our lungs. This action is essential for respiration and allows oxygen to enter our bloodstream, providing our body with the necessary oxygen for various physiological processes. Therefore, "inhaling" accurately represents the act of breathing in.

    What is another word for breathing out

    Correct Answer
    exhaling
    Explanation
    Exhaling is another word for breathing out. When we exhale, we release air from our lungs, expelling carbon dioxide and other waste gases. This process is essential for our respiratory system to function properly and maintain a balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide in our body.

  • 8. 

    What is Ventilation

    Correct Answer
    the process of moving air in and out of the muscles
    Explanation
    Ventilation refers to the process of moving air in and out of the lungs, not the muscles. The muscles involved in ventilation are the diaphragm and intercostal muscles, which contract and relax to create changes in lung volume, allowing air to enter and exit the lungs. Ventilation is essential for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide in the respiratory system.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Name two sets of muscles used to help in breathing

    Correct Answer
    ribs and diaphragm
    Explanation
    The ribs and diaphragm are two sets of muscles used to help in breathing. The ribs are attached to the spine and can move up and outwards during inhalation, expanding the chest cavity and allowing the lungs to expand. The diaphragm is a dome-shaped muscle located at the bottom of the rib cage, and it contracts and flattens during inhalation, increasing the volume of the chest cavity and creating a vacuum that pulls air into the lungs. Both the ribs and diaphragm play essential roles in the process of breathing by facilitating inhalation and exhalation.
