Aerobic respiration requires the presence of oxygen.
The mechanism of generating cellular energy in the presence of oxygen is known as aerobic respiration. It is a biological process where in food glucose is converted into energy in the presence of oxygen. The chemical equation of aerobic respiration is as given below,
|Glucose (C6H12O6) + Oxygen 6(O2) → Carbon-dioxide 6(CO2) + Water 6 (H2O) + Energy (ATP)|
