Complete breakdown of glucose takes place.3. 38 ATP are produced.3. 2 ATP are produced.4. Ethanol carbon dioxide are the byproducts.4. Carbon dioxide and water are the byproducts.
When O2 is unavailable, glucose breakdown is incomplete and it results in the formation of lactic acid. Accumulation of lactic acid leads to sore muscles. Incomplete breakdown of glucose does not result in the formation of alcohol, water or CO2.
