Metalbolism - ATP

6 important questions on Metalbolism - ATP

Energy is not a substance but what is energy than?

Energy is released as a result of cellular respiration in many stages

How is energy released?

Some is energy released as heat, some is stored as chemical energy in form of Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) the energy currency of every cell

When is energy released?

When one of the phosphates is detached will energy release and leaving ADP and a single phosphate

What is th full name of ADP?

Adenosine diphosphate

Where are the single phosphates later used after the the energy left them?

These single phosphates are later used to make more ATP

How can energy be produced when it is needed very fast? And which type of respiration is it? And name on example when energy is needed very fast

When energy is needed very fast it can be produced without the presence of oxygen. Anaerobic respiration (at a flight response for example)
