Cellular respiration-Science Animated Video

Welcome to MooMooMath
All living organisms practice cellular respiration.
This includes bacteria,fungi,plants, and animals
Why is cellular respiration important?
Because 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
Just like these powerplants and turbines generate power for their city.

Cells that need more energy have more mitochondria like muscles

At the mitochondria sugar combines with oxygen to produce carbon dioxide plus water and energy in the energy in the form of atp
