Medical Biology Lab 08: Cellular Respiration and Exercise - Consumable
a. Linking Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration
- Students have the opportunity to model the relationship between photosynthesis and cellular respiration. Using puzzle pieces that are colored and cut out, students create a diagram representing the reactants and products produced during these processes, and how they relate to each other. There is an emphasis on the flow of energy and matter.
b. Cellular Respiration and Exercise
- Students will have the opportunity to observe the effects of exercise on carbon dioxide production, and therefore cellular respiration rates. The investigation will compare carbon dioxide production while resting, during anaerobic exercise, and during aerobic exercise.
Items included in this lab are listed below.
Phenolphthalein solution, 0.04% Sodium hydroxide solution, Straws, Plastic Pipettes.
