2. List the similarities and differences between aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
The similarities between aerobic and anaerobic respiration are:
(i) Carbon dioxide is produced in both reactions.
(ii) Energy is released in both reactions.
The differences between aerobic and anaerobic respiration are:
|Takes place in the presence of oxygen||Takes place without oxygen|
|Complete break down of food||Partial break down of food|
|Carbon dioxide and water as the end product||
Ethanol, carbon dioxide as the end product(in yeast)
|Produces more energy||Produces less energy|
