How is energy released from an ATP molecule?


Question asked by: sharkboyyy

Asked on: 12 Jan 2010

Energy is a tricky concept to grasp, what really happens is that molecules are broken down or changed from one form to another, and the body is able to use some of the chemical energy in the bonds that is released to its own benefit.

It is all to do with the phosphate ions in the ATP and it is these that provide the potential energy to the body.
