Describe an example where humans commercially utilize anaerobic respiration; be specific about the purpose, the organisms used and the products.

Anaerobic respirations are typically used in fermentation processes. Commercially, there is lactobacilli at work with production of yogurt, kimchi, sauercrout, sour beer, and sour dough bread. This latter have lactobacilli and yeast (Candida milleri) in the ratio of 100:1 in San Francisco’s sour dough bread, which makes it unique because different locations …

Why is an ecosystem’s net primary production (NPP) lower than its gross primary production (GPP)? A.NPP reflects the loss of matter due to respiration by the primary producers. B.NPP reflects the gain of oxygen due to respiration by the primary producers. C.GPP reflects the loss of matter due to respiration by the primary producers.

Hi. I think it would be A. Heres how NPP and GPP work: NPP stands for net primary productivity and GPP means gross primary productivity. GPP is basically the entire amount that an ecosystem or area has. NPP is the amount minus the amount lost to the environment. You might …

How does cellular respiration explain why animals breathe rapidly when they are running? Energy is used up while running, and cellular respiration needs oxygen to produce more energy. Energy is used up while running, and cellular respiration needs carbon dioxide to produce more energy. Glucose is used up while running, and cellular respiration needs oxygen to make glucose. Glucose is used up while running, and cellular respiration needs carbon dioxide to make glucose.

Answer is: Energy is used up while running, and cellular respiration needs oxygen to produce more energy. Cellular respiration creates an energy molecule when glucose is broken down. Balanced chemical reaction for cellular respiration (convert biochemical energy):   C₆H₁₂O₆ + 6O₂ → 6CO₂ + 6H₂O + energy, or: glucose + …

Consider the stage of cellular respiration that is shown in the diagram. What is the net ATP production at this stage of cellular respiration? A)2 ATP B)4 ATP C)32 ATP D)36 ATP

Answer: A) 2ATP Explanation: The stage of cellular respiration shown in the image is the glycolysis. It is the first step of the cellular respiration that occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell. It is a sequence of reactions catalysed by various enzymes.  During glycolysis 6-carbon glucose is converted into …

Which process turns food into energy in any cell? A) photosynthesis Or B) cellular respiration

Correct answer: C). Genetically different haploid cells Meiosis is a type of cell division in which four haploid cells are produced, which are genetically different from the parent. It reduces the chromosome number exactly half as contained in the parent. That is why it is called as a reductional division. …

In which way will energy be used after it leaves the mitochondrion during cellular respiration

The correct option is D. Organisms work best at their optimum temperature and pH, above and below these temperature they will not be able to function as expected. It is possible that the students above use different temperature and pH when they were carrying out their experiments, this will result …

Suppose two students were experimenting with yeast to study cellular respiration. One student found glucose to be the most efficiently consumed sugar by yeast, whereas the other student found maltose to be the most efficiently consumed sugar by yeast. Which of the following could explain the results A.Neither of the two answer choices could explain the results. B.Different organisms process food sources differently due to the availability of food and other environmental conditions. The students may have used different yeast strains. C.Either of the two answer choices could explain the results. D.Organisms have varying optimal conditions at which they work the best. The students may have used different temperatures or pH levels for their individual experiments.

Answer: The integumentary system covers the surface of the body is true about the integumentry system. Explanation: The integumentary system includes the skin, nails, glands, hairs, and nerves. Its main role is to act as a barrier to protect the body from the outside environment. It also retains body fluids, …

Fermentation creates _______ ATP than aerobic respiration. the same amount of more less none of the above

Answer: Helicases unwind the two parental DNA’s strands and creates the replication fork; single strand binding proteins keep the single strand from joining. Further information: • DNA replication: a biological method occurring in all living organisms that is the basis for biological inheritance • Helicase: It is an enzyme that …

The main difference between respiration and fermentation is that respiration A. requires oxygen. B. uses glycolysis. C. breaks down sugar. D. makes energy.

Answer: 78 g of potassium Explanation: According to Lavoisier’s Law, the sum of the mass of the products must be equal to the sum of the mass of the reactants. On the reaction we have potassium oxide as product (K2O) and as reactants potassium (K) and Oxygen (O2) Having sayin …
