  • Q2
    What does 'aerobic' mean?
    Using oxygen

  • Q3
    Where in the cell does aerobic respiration take place?
    Mitochondria
    Ribosomes
    Cytoplasm
    Chloroplasts

  • Q4
    Which is NOT a use of energy from respiration?
    Taking water into the cell by osmosis
    Muscle contraction (the muscle gets shorter, which causes movement)
    Building large molecules from smaller ones, eg synthesizing proteins from amino acids
    Taking useful substances into the cell by active transport

  • Q5
    Which cells carry out the most respiration?
    Red blood cells
    Cells in the lungs
    Adipose (fat) cells
    Metabolically active cells, such muscle cells and neurons (nerve cells)
    30s
  • Q6
    True or False? Most animal cells respire (carry out respiration), but plant cells do not.
    True
    False
    30s
  • Q7
    In the process of respiration some ENERGY is LOST as heat to the environment. This type of reaction is known as ...
    homeothermic
    endothermic
    poikilothermic
    exothermic
    30s
  • Q8
    Which of the following is the correct equation for aerobic respiration?
    Glucose + Carbon dioxide ---> Oxygen + Water
    Carbon dioxide + Water ---> Glucose + Oxygen
    Glucose + Oxygen ---> Carbon dioxide + Water
    Glucose ---> Lactic acid
    30s
  • Q9
    What is the purpose of cellular respiration?
    To make energy
    To breathe
    To release the energy that a cell needs to perform cellular functions, such as active transport
    To provide oxygen to the cells
    30s
  • Q10
    What is 'metabolism'?
    How fast a person digests food
    How quickly the body burns fat
    How fast a person absorbs the products of digestion (amino acids, glucose etc)
    The sum of all the chemical reactions in a cell/organism
