Explain the process of cellular respiration.

Cellular respiration:

  • Cellular respiration is a biochemical process in which the simple materials like glucose are oxidized within the cells to release energy. 
  • This process takes place in the mitochondria of the cells and involves a series of biochemical reaction. 
  • The first step is C10H12O6 is broken down in the cytoplasm into a three carbon molecules called pyruvate. This process is anaerobic and is called glycosis.
