Q3 – Study Guide – Cell Respiration & Photosynthesis – 20-21

Cell Respiration and Photosynthesis Test

Cell Respiration and Photosynthesis Test – Wed – March 1st.
I will be adding to this over break but the vocabulary list will not change.

 ATP and Enzyme Form  Emailed Keys  Molecular structure of ATP
Cellular respiration Chart we filled in class:
Glycolysis  Krebs (Citric Acid) Cycle  Oxidative Phosphorylation 
 OUTSIDE mitochondria
Inside mitochondria (matrix) Inside mitochondria (inner  and outer membrane )
Anaerobic Aerobic Aerobic
 Net 2 ATP  NET 2 ATP NET ~34 ATP
 No CO2 produced CO2 produced No CO2 produced
 No water produced No water produced Water formed
1 NADH produced
high energy electrons and protons captured
8 NADH and 2 FADH2 (2 turns )
high energy electrons and protons captured
NAD+ and FAD recycled
high energy electrons and protons delivered
No proton motor force No proton motor force Proton motor force 
Glucose becomes 2 pyruvate pyruvate becomes Acetyl CoA high energy electrons from reactions of glucose and Acetyl CoA create proton motor force
Requires Enzymes Requires enzymes requires protein complexes (electron transport system)  AND the ENZYME = ATP Synthase. 
Glucose gets oxidized Glucose fragments get oxidized Oxygen gets reduced in water
Free electrons in C-H bond taken Free electrons in C-H bond taken tightly held electrons in water
Overall Spontaneous 
breaking large molecule (glucose) in smaller components and energy released



G = –

Overall Spontaneous
breaking large molecules (Acetyl CoA) in smaller components and energy released


G = –

Spontaneous because of coupling
Free Energy  +  ADP + Pi —> ATP


Energy from electrons oxidized from glucose  create the proton motor force that produces the ATP

G = +

Chemical oxidation:  Losing electrons (LEO)                     LEO the Lion says GER!!!
Chemical reduction: Gaining electrons (GER)
