1.oxidation =loss of electrons from one substance
2.reduction = gain of electrons by another substance
3.summary equation of cellular respiration shows glucose oxidized to CO 2with
bond energy transformed into ATP
4.electrons lost from glucose are added to O 2 to form water
5.enzymes necessary to oxidize glucose/other foods
6.co-enzyme NADH/NAD is redox couple, important in oxidizing glucose,
NAD accepts electrons àreduced to NADH.
