While all cells respire to produce energy in the form of ATP, they do not function at the same rate. The rate of cellular respiration depends on the cell type, as well as on various other factors such as temperature. The relationship between temperature, cell type and the rate of cellular respiration for a cell can be represented by a modified Arrhenius equation:
