  • Energy and Life
    • Energy ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate)
      • Living things use fuels as well. One of the most important compund that cells use to store and release energy is ATP.
      • ATP can easily release and store by forming bonds between its phosphate groups. It makes it important useful as a basic source of all cells.
        • Storing Energy: When a cell has energy available, it can store small amounts of it by adding phosphate groups to ADP molecules producing ATP.
        • Releasing Energy: Cells can release the energy stored in ATP by controlled breaking of the chemical bonds between the second and the third phosphate groups.
    • Hetrotrophs and Autotrophs
      • Organisms that obtain food by consuming other living things are known as Hetrotrophs.
        • They get their food by eating plants such as grasses, humans, etc...
      • Organisms that make their own food are calles Autotrophs.
        • Untitled
      • The process by which autotrophs use the enegy of sunlight to produce high enegy carbohydrates. Sugars and starches that can be used as food, known as Photosynthesis.
