This was aslo in conjuction with the rapid at which the carbon dioxide was being released. The results of this experiment showed that with increase in oxygen concentration, there is rapid increase in the heat energy relesed and also the amount of carbon dioxide released. The test for carbon dioxide was lime water which turned white on the passage of carbon dioxide. The amount of energy released could be told by the temperature on the bottle( caroline,28)
To both the plants and animals energy is the most fundamental driving factor. Almost all processes in the bodies of the organisms are initiated and run by energy. These processes ranges from reproduction, locomotion, fertilization, growth and development. This calls on scients like me and others in general to clearly show the factors which contributes to the respiration in organisms. It is of essence to note that the experiment went further to give details on the essential elements required in the respiration in which it was found out that oxygen is essential for aerobic respiration, again glucose or some subtrates like starch must be present for respiration to take place. Carbon dioxide was released this was to confirm that it is of less essence for animals though in plants its used fro the process of photosynthesis .
Some environmental factors such as high temperatures and humidity affects the rate of respiration. In a very cold environment there is less activities experienced by the endotherms this result in utilization of less heat. When the requirement of heat energy is less in the body there is high likelihood of respiration process going slowly. Different food substrates effects differently on the process of respiration. For instance the starch is very rich in energy therefor when used it result in higher energy production. Respiration takes place in two stages in most
