Cellular respiration is the set of the metabolic reactions and processes that take place in the cells of organisms to convert biochemical energy from nutrients into adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and then release waste products.
An example of cellular respiration is taking sugar(Glucose) and breaking it down to water and carbon dioxide and in the process making ATP.
