How would you compare and contrast aerobic respiration and fermentation?

1 Answer

Both are respiration, one is completed in presence of oxygen, while other is completed in absence of oxygen.


  1. Aerobic respiration is an aerobic process. It is completed in presence of oxygen. Here glucose is completly break down by the utilisation of oxygen. The end products are carbondioxide, water and large amount of energy. It is found in all the organisms.
  2. Fermentation is an anaerobic process. The glucose anaeribcally incompletly break down into carbondioxide, alcohol and less amount of enery. It is found in the microbes. Thank You
