How is ‘respiration’ different from ‘breathing’? Explain the process of aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
Breathing is a process in which you inhale or exhale air in and out of your lungs where as, Respiration is the process by which the food taken through nutrition get oxidized to release energy for performing various activities .During the process of respiration the oxygen acquired from outside the body is used to break down the food sources.
Aerobic respiration is the process in which fairy large amount of energy is released in the presence of oxygen from the breakdown of the food substances.
An aerobic respiration is described as the respiratory process in which small amount of energy is released in the absence of oxygen from breakdown of a substances.
Breathing is the physical process where you inhale and exhale air in and out of your lungs. Inhaling brings in air containing Oxygen, which is absorbed and exchanged for Carbon Dioxide. The Carbon Dioxide, now in the air inside your lungs, is expelled when you exhale. The Oxygen is carried in your blood to the cells around your body where respiration takes place. Respiration is a chemical reaction where Oxygen is used to breakdown Glucose in order to generate energy which is then used by the cell to function.
Aerobic respiration is a process that uses oxygen, and anaerobic respiration is a process that doesn’t use oxygen.
