# What is the final products of aerobic respiration?

${C}_{6} {H}_{12} {O}_{6} \left(a q\right) + 6 {O}_{2} \left(g\right) \to 6 C {O}_{2} \left(g\right) + 6 {H}_{2} O \left(l\right)$
As you can see here from the equation, the final products are carbon dioxide $\left(C {O}_{2}\right)$ and water $\left({H}_{2} O\right)$. During the process, glucose $\left({C}_{6} {H}_{12} {O}_{6}\right)$ is converted into $\text{ATP}$, the energy-carrying molecule, through a few steps, such as glycolysis, Krebs cycle, and the electron transport chain.
