What is the main product of aerobic respiration?

Cells undergoing aerobic respiration produce 6 molecules of carbon dioxide, 6 molecules of water, and up to 30 molecules of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is directly used to produce energy, from each molecule of glucose in the presence of surplus oxygen.

Simply so, what are the byproducts of aerobic and anaerobic respiration?

In cellular respiration, glucose and oxygen react to form ATP. Water and carbon dioxide are released as byproducts. The three stages of aerobic cellular respiration are glycolysis (an anaerobic process), the Krebs cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation.

Subsequently, question is, what is aerobic respiration in biology? Aerobic respiration is the process of producing cellular energy involving oxygen. Cells break down food in the mitochondria in a long, multistep process that produces roughly 36 ATP. The first step in is glycolysis, the second is the citric acid cycle and the third is the electron transport system.

Subsequently, question is, how is aerobic respiration used in our body?

In aerobic respiration oxygen and glucose are used and energy is released. Most aerobic respiration takes place inside mitochondria. Some of the energy released in respiration is used to make larger molecules from smaller ones, to enable muscles to contract and to keep temperature steady.

What is the final product of respiration?
