why is respiration considered an exothermic reaction ? explain .

because we release heat

  • -7
  • In the process of respiration, the complex substances (food) are broken down into simpler substances and then converted into glucose. In this whole process, energy (or heat) is released.
  • we know that a reaction in which heat is released along with the formation of products is known as an exothermic reaction.
  • thus, from the above two points, respiration is an exothermic process.

We take items of wheat , rice , potatoes etc. in form of food. They contain carbohydrates. During the process of digestion, carbohydrates are broken down into simpler substances such as glucose . During the process of respiration glucose molecules combine with oxygen in cells and produce energy large amount of energy. Thats why respiration is considered as exothermic reaction . THE RCTN INVLD IS -

C6H12O6 + 6 O2 --> 6CO2 + 6H2O +ENERGY

you know that, exothermic reaction, is any reaction which releases heat energy. when the food is digested, a huge amount of energy is released in the form of heat. thats why it is considered as an exothermic process.

Respiration is considered an exothermic process because in this process glucose (simple carbohydrate)combines with oxygen to spell out water and carbon dioxide along with the energy in the form of ATP molecules.

During respiration,the digested food gets oxidised and the energy is released
  • -5
because in this process energy is released, also in the form of heat

it releases heat C6 H12 O6(aq) + 6O2 _______6O2+6H2O+ HEAT

it releases heat C6 H12 O6(aq) + 6O2 _______6CO2+6H2O+ HEAT

Because in respiration process glucose combine with oxygen in the cells of our body and provide energy

Respiration is the most important biochemical reaction which releases energy in the cell. Even we breathe in air (oxygen) enters our lungs and this oxygen builds itself haemoglobin present in red blood cells. It is then carried to millions of cells present in our body. Respiration occurs in these cells and is accompanied by the combustion of glucose producing CO2 and water. A large amount of energy is released in this chemical reactions.

 During respiration glucose molecules are converted to other molecules in a series of steps.

Heat is released .thatwhy respiration is consider as exothermic reaction.

respiration is considered as an exothermic reaction because in this process food is converted into glucose and heat and energy are released.

In the digestion the carbohydrates is brokendown into glucose and energy is released as we know that exothermic reaction is the release of energy that's why respiration is a exothermic reaction.
  • -2
respiration is exothermic reaction because in this reaction complex food substances broke down into simpler substances and then converted into glucose in this whole process heat is released
   and the reaction in which heat is released along with the formation  of the product is called exothermic reaction
           hence respiration is called exothermic reaction

Respiration is considered to be an exothermic reaction because heat is released along with the formation of glucose.

The above answer is correct.

Rice, potatoes and bread contain carbohydrates. During digestion, these carbohydrates are broken down into a simpler substance called glucose. Digestion follows respiration. During respiration, the glucose combines with oxygen in the cells of our body and provide energy. Thus, respiration is an exothermic process because energy is produced during this process.

For the survival of life, we require energy. We obtain this energy from the food we eat. The food molecules, through the process of digestion is broken down into simpler molecules like glucose. These substances come in contact with the oxygen present in our body cells to form carbon dioxide and water along with a certain amount of energy. Since the energy is in the form of heat ( which maintains our body tempreture) the respiration is considered to be an exothermic reaction. The reaction takes place is: C6H12O6 +6 O2 = 6CO2+ 6H2O + Energy Hope it helps

We need energy to stay alive. We get this energy from the food we eat. During digestion, food is broken down into simpler substances. EXAMPLE : Rice, potato, chapatti and bread contain carbohydrates. These carbohydrates are broken down to form glucose. This glucose combines with oxygen in the cells of our body and provides energy. The special name of this reaction is respiration. In this reaction, energy is released so this is exothermic reaction.

During the process of digestion energy and heat is released. So respiration is considered as a exothermic process.

because during respiration our body converts glucose to energy and also we know that our body is comparatively hot from inside rather than that of the temperature out side.... C6H12O6 +6O2 → 6CO2 + 6H20 + energy HOPE HELPS CHEERS!! AFAQ A.

During digestion, carbohydrates is broken down to glucose . In respiration this glucose is broken down to release energy along with heat . That's why it's considered as an exothermic reaction

Respiration is exothermic, that is, it releases energy.we are referring to cellular respiration with oxygen, which converts glucose and other nutrients into energy for the life of the biological organism. Biological respiration is breathing to bring oxygen into the body. It is not a chemical reaction at all, so it is neither exothermic nor endothermic. Anaerobic respiration is the breakdown of nutrition for energy, but without oxygen. It is exothermic, but not as exothermic as respiration with oxygen, as the nutrients are not broken down as far, and less energy is released. There are other types of respiration, such as aquatic respiration (how fish breathe with gills) and artificial respiration, a medical technique to replace or restore breathing.

In respiration oxidation of glucose take place and a large amount of heat is released. So it is a exothermic reaction.

Because in this process energy is released also in the form of heat❤️

An exothermic reaction is a reaction in which energy is liberated out.

Respiration is considered as exothermic reaction because energy is released in this process.

Glucose combines with oxygen present in our cells to form carbon dioxide and water along with energy.

C₆H₁₂O₆ + 6O₂ ----> 6CO₂ + 6H₂O + energy

Hope This Helps You!

During respiration energy is released in the form of atp molecules.Thus,respiration is an exothermic reaction.

Carbolydrates present in food are broken down to form glucose. This glucose combines with oxygen in the cells of our body and provides energy. This reaction is known as respiration. hence,respiration is considered as an exothermic reaction.
