Respiration

I wanted to go over some of what I think are the important parts of respiration.
We break down glucose (and lots of other things) to make CO
2 and H2O. Both are much lower in chemical potential energy, so free energy is released. But, the convoluted steps we use to do this allow us to harvest little bits of energy to make molecules with a convenient amount of chemical potential energy (such as ATP and NADH+H+). Read More...
