Transcript of 5 Chemical Reactions in the Body

5 Chemical Reactions that occur in your Body Chemical Reaction #1: Aerobic Respiration
Where it occurs:In the lungs
Chemical Equation:C6H12O6 + 6O2 --> 6CO2+ 6H2O + 36 ATPs
Why it necessary:To produce energy for physical movement Chemical Reaction #2:Anaerobic Respiration
Chemical Equation:C6H12O6 + 6 O2 --> 6 CO2 + 6 H2O + energy
Where it occurs:In the stomach and intestines
Why it is necessary:It is important because it is literally the powerhouse of the body, providing energy to keep the body going Chemical Reaction #3: Potassium with water
Chemical Equation:2K+2H20-->H2+2K(OH)
Where it occurs:In the stomach and in the blood stream
Why it is necessary: Potassium is used for long-term energy for a body to stay active. Chemical Reaction #4
Chemical Equation:2 H 2 O --> 2 H 2 + O 2
Where it occurs:In the stomach
Why it is necessary:For the use of cells in the body to remain hydrated. This is necessary because the cellular membrane needs smaller and smaller atoms for them to pass through the selectively permeable wall. Chemical Reaction #5: The reaction of salt in the body
Chemical Equation:NaHCO3 + HC2H3O2 --> NaC2H3O2 CO2 + H2O
Where it occurs:In the stomach with enzymes
Why it is necessary:Salt sets off an osmosis movement in cells where they want to go from a high concentration to a low concentration of water known as a hypertonic solution. By: Preston Minter
