How does ATP store energy?


Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) stores energy by converting its chemical bond to a different form ADP. ADP is the uncharged form. By simply binding to a third phosphate you have a charged molecule again. You can find more information here: http://www. biologyinmotion. com/atp/index. html
Q&A Related to "How does ATP store energy?"
Energy is stored in ATP just like a battery when a cell has energy available, it can store small amounts of it by adding a phosphate group to ADP molecules.
ATP, or Adenosine Triphosphate, is made up of one adenine, and three phosphate groups. The energy is stored in the bonds between the phosphate groups. When that bond is broken in
ATP is a compound that contains adenine, ribose, and three phosphate groups. The
1. Your body begins the cycle from ADP to ATP by consuming high-energy foods. The best foods for producing energy are carbohydrates: breads, crackers, pasta or starchy vegetables
