  • Phosphorilation
    • Creating ATP by joining  Pi (inorganic phosphate) to ADP
      • Occurs in solution
        • Pi hydrated
          • Binds to H2O molecules
          • Has to be separated from water to make ATP
            • Requires energy
        • ATP is higher in energy than ADP and Pi
          • ATP used to store chemical energy
          • Keeps Pi seperate from water
    • Pi removed from ATP by hydrolysis
      • Forms ADP
      • Energy required to break bonds
        • Once removed, Pi becomes hydrated
          • Lots of energy released as bonds form
            • Used to supply energy to reactons in cell
            • Some increases temperature of cell
            • Some drives metabolic reaction
