The overall equation for aerobic respiration is C6H12O6 (glucose) + 6O2 (oxygen) => 6CO2 (carbon dioxide) + 6H2O (water) + 30-32 ATP (energy).  Rewrite the equation as sentences to describe what occurs in this process.

Occuring : The production of organic carbon (glucose and starch) from inorganic carbon (carbon dioxide) with the use of ATP and NADPH produced in the light dependent reaction. 

-catabolic/ exergonic
-glucose molecules are oxidized to carbon dioxide molecules, and oxygen atoms are reduced to water molecules.

 glucose + oxygen → carbon dioxide + water + energy ATP
