By the end of the tutorial, the learner should be able to:
•Explain energy release from food for cellular activities.
•Show relationship between photosynthesis and cellular respiration with regard to reactants and products.
•Review the role of ATP.
•Determine rate of cellular respiration by measuring amount of Carbon dioxide produced.
Cellular respiration is a chemical reaction that occurs in your cells to create energy; when you are exercising your muscle cells are creating ATP to contract. Cellular respiration requires oxygen (which is breathed in) and creates carbon dioxide (which is breathed out.
