    $\begingroup$ What do you mean by compare? The amount of ATP made in each process? Is this a homework question? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Aly I guess you are referring to glycolysis and its switch to lactic fermentation in anaerobic conditions? $\endgroup$

You means fermentation and respiration? In aerobic,1 mol glucose trough respiration and get about 38 ATP In anaerobic, 1 mol glucose through fermentaion and get 2 ATP

    $\begingroup$ I think you mean 1 molecule, not 1 mol. $\endgroup$
