Chemical Equation for Aerobic Cellular Respiration

Cellular Respiration is a set of metabolic reactions that converts biochemical energy from nutrients such as sugar, amino acids etc., into adenosine triphosphate (ATP) in the cells of living organisms and then release the waste products. This is the formula or chemical equation of the aerobic cellular respiration that occurs in the organism.

Cellular Respiration Formula


C6H12O6 + 6O2 → 6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy

The equation expressed in words would be,
Glucose + Oxygen → Carbon Dioxide + Water + Energy

The cellular respiration is an aerobic respiration which involves glucose, oxygen and water for the process to occur.
