Differentiate between breathing and respiration.
Both breathing and respiration are inevitable for the living organisms.
|Breathing is a mechanical action involving the act of inhaling and exhaling. Breathing involves taking in oxygen from the environment and removal of carbon dioxide from the body.||Respiration also involves the process by which chemical energy stored in the food is released in the form of ATP along with carbon dioxide and water.|
|Breathing takes place in the respiratory organs called as lungs.||Respiration takes place in the cells.|
|Breathing is a physical and voluntary process.||Respiration is a chemical and involuntary process.|
|Breathing involves respiratory organs and the cells called as alveoli.||Respiration involves cells in the body an their organelles.|
