For the following statement, state whether the rate of cellular respiration
increases, decreases, or stays the same. As the intensity of exercise increases, the rate of cellular respiration blank.
Cellular respiration is the process of converting energy in glucose to ATP to provide
energy for our cells. There are two types of cellular respiration: aerobic and anaerobic. Aerobic respiration requires the use of oxygen, while anaerobic does not.
In aerobic respiration, glucose is combined with oxygen to make carbon dioxide,
water, and energy in the form of ATP. This ATP is what powers numerous processes in our body, including muscle contractions
during exercise. The more muscle contractions we have, the higher the demand for cellular respiration
in the body.
Therefore, in the statement “As the intensity of exercise increases, the rate of
cellular respiration blank,” the correct answer to fill in this blank is
