Aerobic Respiration

Anaerobic Respiration


Uses oxygen to breakdown glucose in the body

Uses a respiratory electron transport chain but does not use oxygen as the electron acceptors.

Cells that use it

Aerobic respiration occurs in most cells.

Anaerobic respiration occurs in bacteria, yeasts, some prokaryotes, erythrocytes (red blood cells), and in muscle cells.

Lactic Acid

Does not produce lactic acid

Produces lactic acid

By Products

Carbon dioxide, water, energy

Lactic acid, energy, ethanol, carbon dioxide


Glycolysis, Krebs cycle, Electron Transport Chain

Glycolysis, Fermentation

Amount of Energy released

2900 kJ/mol of glucose

120 kJ/mol of glucose
