Chemistry - Respiration

Respiration

During respiration, the chemical energy that was stored in glucose C6H12O6
is released for use in the body. It is converted into:

* thermal energy, which provides us with warmth

* electrical energy in our nerves

* mechanical energy in our muscles

* chemical energy in product molecules

About 20 per cent of the energy released by the oxidation of glucose is
available for use in cells. Most of the rest is lost as heat.
