Cellular Respiration

All living organisms practice cellular respiration.
This includes bacteria, fungi, plants, and animals.
Why is cellular respiration important?
Living organisms generate energy with cellular respiration.
In plants and animals, cellular respiration takes place at the mitochondria.

Think of the mitochondria as the power plant of the cell because the energy of the cell is generated at the mitochondria much like powerplants and turbines generate power for their city.

Cells that need more energy, like muscles, have more mitochondria. 

At the mitochondria, sugar combines with oxygen to produce
carbon dioxide plus and energy in the form of ATP.
