Almost all cellular functions require the cell to have energy.Cells need energy to grow, move, and clean out bad bacteria
In its form, glucose is ready for absorption into the blood stream.As such, it is the most preferred source of energy in body cells.
No, it is not a renewable source of energy. . Fuel cell is a means of storage energy, for example hydrogen can be produced from any primary energy source; renewable (as solar energy) or exhaustible (as coal or oil) and then stored as energy in the fuel cell. When energy is needed later on as elect…ricity then we can get from the fuel cell. Fuel cells is very efficient as in intermediate energy storage system in a proposed global energy system that is completely clean energy system. In this system, hydrogen is produced (parallel with electricity) from renewable (like solar) or non-conventional (like nuclear) primary energy source. . Fuel cells have typically used hydrogen and oxygen as a power source. You can get these gases by splitting water (H 2 O) either by electrolysis or by what we call water thermochemical decomposition. In this thermochemical decomposition method water can be split into hydrogen and oxygen in some consecutive intermediate steps where special chemicals are used as catalysts to get this decomposition possible at practical temperature ranges. As an aside: For the same amount of energy, coal produces more greenhouse gases (CO 2 ) than gasoline. So, if your electricity is generated form coal (which is common), a fuel cell powered or electric car will probably produce more greenhouse gases than a gasoline powered car (of the same size, power, etc). . Electric powered cars are considered environmentally friendly so far as the electricity is produced from a renewable or non-conventional primary energy source. (MORE)
The major immediate carbohydrate source of energy for the cell is glucose . The ultimate carbohydrate source may be another compound, such as sucrose (the sugar people put in a cup of tea, use in baking cakes, and so on), or starch , which occurs in many plant foods. These other compou…nds are converted into glucose for cellular respiration , which involves the release of energy from chemical compounds. (MORE)
The cell gets its energy when nutritional components of food are oxidized by the oygen of inspiration in mitochondria. When the cells need energy a phosphate bond breaks and energy is released for performing particular cellular activity.
They use energy from carbon -di-oxide & it is known as anaerobic respiration.It occurs in the absence of oxygen & release 2 molecules of ATP from one glucose molecule. It also produces alcohol & lactic acid
They use respiration: C 6 H 12 0 6 + 6CO 2 = 6O 2 + 6H 2 0 + ATP (energy)
The main source of energy for cells is from food. And the preferredfood by your body is carbohydrates, even if that is not the onlything you should eat.
The breakdown of glucose in cellular respiration produces ATP, which a cell needs to carry out its functions.
if the cell is a plant cell then the sorce of energy woukd be light. if not there is some kind on food sorce
mitochondria in animals and chloroplasts in plants (these produce ATP [adenosine triphosphate] which is coupled to endothermic reacitons to provide the necessary activation energy)
Glucose is more efficient for cells to keep only a small supply of ATP on hand because a single of molecule of the sugar glucose stores more than 90 times the chemical energy of a molecule of ATP.
Mitochondria are the sites of cellular respiration. The produce energy units called ATP -AdenosineTriphosphate via a process called oxidative phosphorilation. Hence mitochondria are called the 'power house' of the human cells.
ATP. ATP is derived from a breakdown of glucose through various processes (glycolysis and TCA cycle).
Fuel cells are a manufactured item and are not renewable. The fuel that is used in the fuel cells can either be renewable (alcohol, methane from waste digestion,hydrogen from wind or solar conversion of water) or non-renewable (Hydrogen or methane from oil and gas production, alcohol from industri…al processes) (MORE)
The most important source of energy for cells from sugars isglucose. In fact, photosynthesis specifically creates glucose,which it then pretty quickly converts into energy.
A solar cell is not an energy source, but an energy converter. In the case of solar, the energy source is light, and the solar cell converts it from light energy to electrical energy.
Both animal and plant cells use ATP as their main source of energy; ATP is generated by cellular respiration.
ATP (adenosine triphosphate) hydrolysis, the reaction releases energy and can be used to drive normally unwilling reactions
Basically, the ultimate source of energy for anything on earth can be considered solar energy. Moreover, on a wider outlook, the ultimate source of energy for the stars, galaxies and all could be the big bang which formed matter in this universe
We the body digests the food we eat and stores glucose. Cells turn glucose into ATP, and utilizing this as chemical energy, the cell performs the various chemical reactions which allow it to carry out its function. From Howstuffworks.com: A set of 10 enzymes allows a cell to perform glycolysis . …Another eight enzymes control the citric-acid cycle (also known as the Krebs cycle). These two processes together allow a cell to turn glucose and oxygen into adenosine triphosphate, or ATP. In an oxygen-consuming cell like E. coli or a human cell, one glucose molecule forms 36 ATP molecules (in something like a yeast cell, which lives its life without oxygen, only glycosis occurs and it produces only two ATP molecules per glucose molecule). ATP is a fuel molecule that is able to power enzymes by performing "uphill" chemical reactions Note: Neurons also utilize electricity (in addition to chemical transmitters) to perform their functions. The heart also produces and responds to electrical current. (MORE)
ATP (Adenosine triphosphate) is often referred to as the cells' "battery substance" because it is used as a coenzyme in reactions that require energy. It is produced in cellular respiration (using nutrients) from AMP (~ monophosphate) and ADP (~ diphosphate); in this process it basically gains pho…sphate groups. ATP then often binds to enzymes, transferring phosphate groups and that way energy. Note that ATP has other uses and is also one of the basic components of DNA. (MORE)
I would guess water, but I'm not 100% sure. improved answer: water is a medium in which reactions take place, the answer to the most important energy source for a cell is discussable, the main way to intake energy is by breaking down glucose, but one might argue that starch and fats would be more …important as they contain many glucose molecules.

Mitochondria is most important part of cell that produces ATP (energy ) in cell . Some energy is produced in cytoplasm .
It depends on what type of cells you're talking about. Assuming that you are talking about humans, the process is called cellular respiration. The first step is glycolysis, where glucose is split into two molecules of pyruvic acid. This occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell. This pyruvic acid then ent…ers the mitochondria of the cell and goes through a process called the Kreb's cycle (or sometimes the Citric Acid cycle.) The energy is taken from the pyruvic acid and passed on to other molecules (NADH+H + , fADH 2 ). These molecules then enter the final step of the respiration process, the electron transport chain. The energy passes through a series of proteins, drawn by the electronegativity of Oxygen. Ultimately, the energy is packed into a molecule called ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) and this is the primary source of energy for cellular functions. (MORE)
the mitochondria is the main source but most of them provide energy also. hope this answers your question.
ATP stands for adenosine triphosphate. This means that there are 3 phosphate groups in the molecule, which are linked to the adenosine with very high energy covalent bonds. Whenever any of these phosphate groups' bonds is broken, it releases all of the energy that was involved in the bond. It is con…verted to ADP (adenosine diphosphate) and so on by enzymes, that can break the covalent bonds to phosphate groups and release the big pack of potential energy. (MORE)

Adenosine triphosphate is made up of adenosine (adenine +ribose) and three phosphate groups. The energy store in the molecule is caused by the electron configuration. The three phosphate groups have a total of 4 negative charges confined in a small area. These charges repel each other, so this makes… the potential energy of the molecule very high. When ATP undergoes hydrolysis: ATP + H2O --> ADP + P the ADP and P are stablalized be cause the electrons are distributed between the ADP and the phosphate. The hydrogens from the water also surround the phosphate to reduce the charge. The hydrolysis of ATP is exergonic (spontaneous) in other words this reaction can do work on its surroundings. The organisms harnesses this work by using this free energy to phosphorylate ( to add phosphates to) molecules. Phosphorylating molecules allows many reactions to occur that are not spontaneous. For example, phosphorylation polymerizes monomers (lower energy) into polymers (higher energy). In these reactions ATP directly phosphorlyates a substrate monomer. The substrate is becomes high in potential energy because the phosphate has two negative charges. The high energy substrate now has the ability to react to form a product polymer, because the product molcule is lower in energy than the phosphorylated substrate. The energy ATP has, is also used in phosphorlation of proteins. When a protein is phosphorylated, the phosphate causes a conformational change that alters the proteins shape and function. Phosphorylation can essentially move part protein, an actuality this process is responsible for the movement of our bodies, ion pumps, movement of molecules, and other tasks a cells do. (MORE)
PV probably stads for 'photo-voltaic'. If that is the case then the answer is solar power as photo-voltaic cells are a crucial component of solar panels.
To function yes, otherwise they die. Some cell types might be able to survive in a state of dormancy for a while without energy though.
adenosine triphosphate provides energy needed for cellular functions energy is released when one of the three phosphate groups break off, releasing energy and resulting in a low-energy adenosine diphosphate. This molecule is reconstructed into ATP at the near end of the Krebs cycle, when the contr…olled flow of hydrogen ions powers the re-attachment of phosphate groups onto adenosine diphosphate (MORE)
carbs are sugars so they give you energy so that helps the cells in your body work
It depends, if its an animal cell the mitochondrea makes energy, for plants its the chloroplasts. Animals break down energy and sugar from what they eat, plants get energy from sunlight and CO2.
They are a source of electrial energy because you have to charge them and people tend to chanrge them longer than needed suck as, overnight.
One would be "adenosine triphosphate", which is carried by mitochondria (along with DNA of course) to the cells nucleus within eukaryotic cells.
They get it from the Mitochondria. The mitochondria is called the power house for the cell because it opens/burns the food in the cell, letting out energy in a cell.

The main disadvantage is that it is only works fully in direct sunlight, so you need another source of power, like battery power or a connection to the public power supply, when the sun goes in.
The cell mitochondria get their energy thru the processes associated with Adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Since ATP can't be stored, it gets recycled by the body many times each day. This process is facilitated by the presence of a simple sugar known as D-Ribose. For more technical info, see the Wikip…edia article on Adenosine triphosphate. For a source of D-Ribose, check out LuckyVitamin.com (supplied by NOW Foods) The oxidation of respiratory substances like carbohydrates, proteins, fats and organic acids in mitochondria produce energy in the cells to carry out vital functions.
