Aerobic Respiration Crossword

Type
Crossword
Description

What is the reactant of aerobic respiration we get from our food? Glucose
The site of aerobic respiration Mitochondria
These can contract using energy released in aerobic respiration Muscles
Oxygen joins with this to be transported around the body Haemoglobin

These increase the surface area in the small intestine to allow lots of diffusion of glucose Microvilli
Microvilli and alveoli have this to allow fast and easy diffusion thinwall
What do we call the movement of oxygen into the blood from the alveoli and carbon dioxide in the reverse direction. Gas exchange
What system in the body gets glucose from food? Digestive
Aerobic respiration releases this and the body needs it for growth, to move and to make large chemicals energy
This is the waste product of aerobic respiration that we breathe out and plants will use in photosynthesis carbondioxide
