Project #56617 - Bio 175 words and two 75 words reply

Question(175words):How do your cells continue to make energy if oxygen is not present?  Compare this process to aerobic respiration. How do the steps and results compare to aerobic respiration?  Why do you think the anaerobic process exists in animals?

1.Your cells cannot live for long without oxygen, however for brief periods of time your cells can create energy by fermentation. This fermentation process will not give out the same amount of energy that the anaerobic process produces, but it will create energy while you are in a bind. The fermentation process only creates 2 ATP while the anaerobic process gives us 32 ATP. Animals need the extra energy that anaerobic process creates because unlike plants we all move around and exert a lot of energy on (more or less) a daily basis. We rely on our bodies and the food we eat to give us the energy that is needed so our bodies turn what they can into glucose and the anaerobic process begins and we get the energy we need to function.

2.It would be hard to imagine how we could do what we do without the aid of oxygen. Oxygen is everything and it gives us the means to run, breathe and practically do anything our bodies are capable of doing. Anyways our cells still produce ATP, but at a very slower and minimal rate. Instead of producing around 30-40 ATP it produces around 1-4 ATP which is severely low compared to the higher number. For animals and plants it depends on the amount of ATP they will get. Plants do not move as much as animals, thus requiring less energy than animals whom are constantly moving. The term Aerobic Respiration is defined in several steps with one being of calories consumed or need to use energy. For a better understanding is that Anaerobic Respiration requires using transitional energy, an animal needs more energy to burn to be able to outrun a predator or for the predator to catch and kill its prey. While most plants are capable of making their own food source therefore needing little energy to grow.
