The following are the benefits of stepwise release of energy in respiration: -
i. There is a gradual release of chemical bond energy, which is easily trapped in the formation of ATP molecules.
ii. The temperature of the cell is not allowed to rise.
iii. Energy waste is reduced.
iv. A variety of intermediates can be used in the production of a variety of biochemicals.
v. Different substances can undergo respiratory catabolism via their metabolic intermediates.Answered by Pragya Singh | 1 year ago
