The reactants and products is simply the photosynthesis formula reversed.


Since respiration used oxygen and glucose to produce energy, and also creates water and carbon dioxide, we can use the photosynthesis formula and reverse it.

#"Photosynthesis: " 6H_2O + 6CO_2 => C_6H_12O_6 + 6O_2#
#"Respiration: " C_6H_12O_6 + 6O_2 => 6H_2O + 6CO_2#
