  • Cellular Respiration Cartoon - Lila Ramirez
  • I want to make a smoothie today. But first, let me chop up these fruits so it's easier to mix.
  • Now my fruits are blended together! Now it's much easier to consume.
  • Well, it looks like I'm left with left-over fruits. I can save these and eat them later.
  • In the cellular respiration process, the glucose molecules (watermelon) are being taken apart. This is the first stage of cellular respiration; it is called glycolysis (the breakdown of glucose molecules).
  • In fact, I want to take the left-over watermelon slice, even though I take out the watermelon chunks in my smoothie!
  • In cellular respiration, this process is called the Krebs Cycle. Krebs cycle is a sequence of actions in which living cells create energy during aerobic respiration (the making of cellular energy). In this case, the energy is the smoothie.
  • Now I have finished making my scrumptious smoothie. This is definitely enough to give me energy for the day!
  • When cells make ATP, they also make waste-carbon dioxide and water.
  • This is similar to the Electron transfer chain. The ETC cycle is the final stage of the cellular respiration process.
  • The ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) has been produced by the organism and can be used by it.
