C6H12O6(aq) + 6O2(g) ———-> 6CO2 + 6H 2O(l) + Heat Hence, heat is evolved during respiration it is considered as an exothermic reaction. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Anshita 2021-02-04T08:57:35+00:00Added an answer on February 4, 2021 at 8:57 am In the course of respiration glucose is broken into carbon dioxide and energy is released. That’s why it is considered as an exothermic reaction. C6H12O6(aq)+6O2→6CO2(aq)+6H2O(I)+Energy 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Featured image Select file Browse Click on image to update the captcha.
