Satyabrat Sukla Biology 10/ Mr. Daniels September 22, 2011 Section 4.1 Questions 1-5 1. How are ATP and ADP related? They relate in the terms that they are both phosphate groups and that they both act upon energy. Adenosine triphosphate transfers every for the cell to process and Adenosine diphosphate is a lower energy molecule that can be converted into ATP with the help of an extra phosphate group. 2. What types of molecules are broken down to make ATP? Which are most often broken down to make ATP? Organisms break down carbon based molecules to produce ATP. Carbon based particles are the molecule that are most often broken down to make AT. The ones that are most often broken down are the carbon based molecules in living organisms which are; carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins.…show more content…
How are some organisms able to survive without sunlight and photosynthesis? Chemosynthesis is the process by which organisms that do not get sunlight and cannot perform photosynthesis survive. In this process, organisms use chemical energy instead of light energy to make energy storing carbon molecules. 4. Describe how you do not get energy directly from the food you eat. ATP transfers energy for cell processes. We do not gain energy directly from the food that we digest because ATP transfers broken-down food molecules into chemical energy that the cell uses. 5. How are the energy needs of plant cells similar to those of animal cells? How are the different? ATP transfers food molecules into chemical energy for the processes of the cell, ATP is a molecule that acts for both plants and animals. But living organisms have to ingest carbohydrates and other good molecules for us to gain energy. On the other hand, plant cells gain their chemical energy by a process called
