Answer:

Cellular respiration or aerobic cellular respiration, is exergonic because energy is released from the reaction and therefor the products have less energy then the starting substance.

Explanation:

Because it releases energy. Cellular respiration is a catabolic pathway -- this means it takes bigger molecules (like glucose) and breaks them down into smaller, more stable molecules. Since glucose has more energy than the smaller molecules produced at the end of cellular respiration, there is some extra energy left over, which is then stored in ATP.
