Fun fact: Each dolphin have their own series of clicks and sounds.
The molucules enter through the cell membrane and into the mitocondria.
For Ms. Kim and Ms. Tamimi: I want to do this just for a final draft.
Cellular Respiration starts by eating. A dolphin gets energy by eating food and breathing in oxeygen.
The food breaks down into glucose. Both glucose and oxeygen are essential for Cellular Respiration because they are the 2 reactants in order to make energy.
Energy for swimming
The glucose and oxeygen break down in the mitocondria. For it to create energy.
3 products exits the mitochondria. Which is water, carbon dioxide, and ATP. Which is a molecule that delivers energy throughout the body.
Dolphins deposits these products, rather than keeping it in their bodies. Carbon dioxide is released when the dolphin reaches for the surface to exhale. Water is deposit by releasing urine into the water around them. Lastly, ATP is released to continue swimming and staying alive.
