Lesson Worksheet: Aerobic Respiration Biology

In this worksheet, we will practice recalling the reactants and products of aerobic respiration, and explaining the importance of respiration for organisms.


What gas is produced in aerobic respiration?

  • AMethane
  • BCarbon dioxide
  • CSulfur dioxide
  • DOxygen


Aerobic respiration in humans requires a supply of glucose. Where does this glucose come from?

  • AFrom inhalation of gases from the atmosphere
  • BFrom water in the person’s diet
  • CFrom the breakdown of dead cells
  • DFrom food in the person’s diet


Not including energy/ATP, state the correct word equation for aerobic respiration.

  • AOxygen + water carbon dioxide + glucose
  • BOxygen + glucose carbon dioxide + water
  • COxygen + carbon dioxide glucose + water
  • DWater + glucose carbon dioxide + oxygen


During the process of aerobic respiration, energy is released from the breakdown of glucose.

This energy is stored in the form of a molecule in the cell. What is the name given to this molecule?

  • AATP
  • BTPA
  • CACP
  • DAPP


Which of the following organs is/are responsible for taking in the oxygen required for aerobic respiration in humans?

  • AThe large intestine
  • BThe lungs
  • CThe heart
  • DThe stomach
  • EThe small intestine


What subcellular organelle is the main site of aerobic respiration?

  • ACytoplasm
  • BNucleus
  • CCell membrane
  • DMitochondria
  • ERibosomes


Which of the following is not a use of ATP in animals?

  • ARegulation of body temperature
  • BSimple diffusion of substances across cell membranes
  • CActive transport of substances across cell membranes
  • DMovement and locomotion
  • ESynthesis of large molecules from smaller ones


Aerobic respiration requires oxygen. How is this oxygen delivered to cells for respiration?

  • ABy the nervous system
  • BBy white blood cells
  • CBy red blood cells
  • DBy active transport
  • EBy chemical messengers


While excluding energy/ATP, state the correct and balanced chemical (symbol) equation for aerobic respiration.

  • A6CO+6O6HO+CHO2226126
  • BCHO+6CO6O+6HO6126222
  • CCHO+6HO6CO+6O6126222
  • DCHO+6O6CO+6HO6126222


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 .

  • Astays the same
  • Bdecreases
  • Cincreases
