     Cellular Respiration is the process of oxidizing or breaking down food molecules. The energy released is put in the form of ATP so now it is usable to anywhere in the cell that needs it. This process takes place in the cytosol and the mitochondria. There are 4 parts, Glycolysis - Transition Reactions - Krebs Cycle - Election Transport Chain. Cellular Respiration is made up of aerobic and anaerobic respiration. Glycolysis is the only part that is anaerobic, the rest are aerobic.

The equation of Cellular Respiration is 6O2 + C6H12O6 > 6CO2 + 6H2O + 38ATP

     This is a table of the amount of ATP, NADH, and FADH made in each part of Cellular Respiration.
