Fundamentals of Cellular Respiration

Course Level 2: Intermediate

Estimated Study Time: 1-2 hours

Cellular respiration is a key concept to understand in biology as it involves obtaining energy from the nutrients organisms eat and the removal of waste products. It is a key biological process which is vital to all life forms, including humans.

In this biology course you will learn about the chemical makeup of the energy that is stored, generally referred to as adenosine triphosphate (ATP), how this molecule works and how it is used in the respiratory process. You will also learn about glucose as it is the main source of energy, and the stages involved in cellular respiration from glycolysis through the Kerb’s cycle to the electron transport chain. You will learn how molecules are split to release energy through oxidization to produce ATP and waste products in the form of water and carbon dioxide.
