Please explain diffrence between aerobic and anaerobic respiration

Aerobic respiration Anaerobic respiration

It occurs in the presence of O2.

It occurs in the cytoplasm and mitochondria.

It always releases CO2 and H2O as end product.

It involves production of high energy i.e 36 ATP.

C6H12O6  → CO2 + H2O + ATP ( Energy)

It occurs in the absence of O2.

It occurs only in the cytoplasm.

End products are mostly lactic acid and alcohol

It involves production of less energy only 2 ATP

C6H12O6 → Lactic acid /alcohol + energy
