  1. Oxygen is requires at the cellular level to produce energy in the form of ATP, the body's energy molecule in a process known as...
    Oxidative phosphorylation
  2. Cellular energy production begins with..
    The metabolism of glucose
  3. Define glycolysis
    Glucose is converted to two molecules of pyruvic acid. Produces two atp molecules as a result. Does not require oxygenation.
  4. What happens with glucose when oxygen is not present?
    The pyruvic acid molecules are converted to lactic acid along with the production of two more atp. Lactic acid builds up and changes the tissue ans blood ph.
  5. If oxygen is available the pyruvix acid molecules enter what is known as the..
    Krebs cycle
  6. What is the Krebs cycle?
    Produces additional energy in the form of 32-34 additionak atp molecules from a single glucose molecule.
  7. Oxygen is required as an electron transport molecule in this process and is used up
    Aerobic respiration
  8. Involves both gas exchange and transport
  9. Involves the movement of gases across a physiologic barrier
  10. Gases must cross the alveolar-capillary membrane in a process called
    External respiration
  11. At the tissues, gases must cross the capillary-tissue cell membrane and this is referred to as
    Internal respiration
  12. The movement of gas molecules from an area of high concentration to an area of lower concentration until equilibrium is reached
  13. Individual gas partial pressure differences
    Diffusion gradient
  14. All molecules of all gases move in the same direction due to a total pressure gradient

  24. What diffused faster, co2 or o2?
    O2 bc it is lighter . 32 gmw vs 44gmw for CO2
  25. The more soluble and lighter the gas, the faster/slower it diffuses
  26. CO2 diffuses how many more times than o2?
  27. The amount of gas that diffuses for each mmHg of pressure.
    Diffusion coefficient. Equal to solubility of the gas divided by the square root of the gmw
