Cellular respiration is the process of taking Oxygen and Glucose and turning it into ATP, energy for the body. In this lecture, that is the topic I deal with. It’s important to understand this process in order to understand how the body functions, because in order to do everything you do, energy is needed. This is different from the process of Photosynthesis in Plants because, unlike plants, we cannot produce our own energy from the energy obtained from the Sun.
This is part Chapter 9 in the textbook Biology: The Dynamics of Life, which is the chapter on Energy of the Cell.
