The energy yield in terms of ATP is higher in aerobic

Question:

The energy yield in terms of ATP is higher in aerobic respiration than during anaerobic respiration. Explain.

Solution:

Aerobic respiration produces 38 ATP molecules from a single glucose molecule while Anaerobic respiration produces only 2 ATP molecules from a single glucose

molecule. That is why ATP is higher in aerobic respiration than during anaerobic respiration.
