- Glucose is in turn broken down by a process called glycolysis, which takes place in the cytoplasm, or cellular fluid. Glycolysis, the glycolysis process uses two ATP molecules to convert glucose, which has 6- carbon atoms, into two 3-carbon molecules of a compound called pyruvate in a series of steps.
- Aerobic respiration takes place in almost all living things. It is easy to get rid of the Carbon Dioxide and excess water and maximum energy is released from the glucose.
orGlucose + Oxygen --> Carbon Dioxide + Water + chemical energy stored in ATP molecules
This is the process of Aerobic Respiration ^^^^^^^
