Expert Answer:

Kreb's cycle is an important step in aerobic respiration which takes place in mitochondria in presence of molecular oxygen. Here pyruvic acid is further degraded into CO2 and H2O, releasing energy. The organic acids formed in this cycle have 3 carboxylic groups, hence this cycle is also called tricarboxylic acid cycle.
