Fill in the blank and explain the statement
After complete oxidation of a glucose molecules, ---- --- --- number of ATP molecules are formed.
After complete oxidation of a glucose molecules, 38 number of ATP molecules are formed.
Explanation : We need energy to work through the day, similarly each cell of our body needs energy to survive. Cellular respiration is the process by which cell fulfill its energy need in the form of ATP. ATP is energy currency in the cell. In cellular respiration glucose molecules break down (oxidation) in presence of oxygen. On complete breakdown, each glucose releases 38 ATP molecules.
