In the process of respiration

C6Hl2O6(s) + 6 O2(g) → 6 CO2(g) + 6 H2O()

which molecule undergoes oxidation? Which molecule undergoes reduction?

Interpretation Introduction


The molecule undergoes reduction and oxidation in the process of respiration has to be determined.

Concept introduction: Respiration permits the living things and plants to release energy stored in the chemical bond of carbohydrate such as sugar made from carbon dioxide and water during photosynthesis.

In terms of electron transfer:-

Oxidation is loss of electron.

Reduction is gain of electron.


In terms of electron transfer oxidation is loss of electrons and reduction is gain of electrons.

In the process of respiration oxidation and reduction is shown below:


 In the process of respiration glucose undergoes oxidation and convert into carbon dioxide
