We burn Lipids, Carbohydrates and Proteins. The 'Particular Order' depends upon 'Substance Availability'.
Mitochondria...... it is called as the power house of cell
mitochondria in animals and chloroplasts in plants (these produce ATP [adenosine triphosphate] which is coupled to endothermic reacitons to provide the necessary activation en…ergy)
ATP. ATP is derived from a breakdown of glucose through various processes (glycolysis and TCA cycle).
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.
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, galax…ies and all could be the big bang which formed matter in this universe
What food can provide the body with a quick source of the energy needed to carry out cell functions?
Whole grain bread
Glucose is a sugar, so yes it is a source of energy.
One would be "adenosine triphosphate", which is carried by mitochondria (along with DNA of course) to the cells nucleus within eukaryotic cells.
