During aerobic respiration, it is produced in the cytoplasm of the cell.

During anaerobic respiration, it is produced in the mitochondria of the cell.

[Extra information:

During cellular respiration, 38 ATPs are generated.

Out of 38 ATPs, 2 ATPs are formed during glycolysis, 2 ATPs are formed during the Krebs cycle, and around 34 ATPs during the electron transport system.]
