Respiration

Mrs Jackie

Amount of energy in the form of ATP released from one glucose molecule, in the whole process of respiration

Actual number of ATP mol produced is 36 and not 38

Reason

2 ATPs are used in shuttling NADH+H produced from glycolysis in the cytoplasm, into the mitochondria

1 glucose 36ATP

1ATP 7.3kcal

36x7.3=262.8kcal

Energy produced from the complete oxidation of one mole of glucose when it is burnt in a calorimeter=686kcal

262.8/686 *100=38%

Anaerobic respiration-only 2 ATP produced

7.3 *2/686 *100=2.1%
