3. How many ATP are produced during fermentation of one glucose molecule? During what specific process is the ATP produced? 4. If yeast, sugar and water are mixed together, the yeast will metabolize the sugar using the process of fermentation. If this process takes place in a sealed container, the bubbles produced during fermentation will be trapped. What substance are these bubbles made of? 1. Compare and contrast aerobic respiration, anaerobic respiration and fermentation. (In order to answer this you must define each and then point out the differences.)
2. Which type of metabolism is most energy efficient? Which is least Why?
5. Explain how fermentation is more than just glycolysis. Why are the additional steps beyond the reactions of glycolysis necessary?
6. The making bread, beer, wine, cheese each involve fermentation. Choose one of these products and describe, in detail, how fermentation is involved in its production (This is a research question, meaning that you will need to look up information in order answer).
