If you're talking about biological viruses, they dont actually need energy as they are mostly proteins and are inactive most of the time and become active only when they reach a host like a bacterium or any other cell. Its pure thermodynamics on how the virus attaches itself and injects DNA/RNA into the host. So there is no need for energy
yes medical viruses does use energy
Virus particles have no metabolism and does not use energy. However, some viruses have kinetic energy stored in the high pressure inside them, this energy is released when they squirt their genome into the host cell. When they hijack the cell to make more viruses the cell will use energy to produce new viruses.
Viruses use energy in the form of ATP to function. All living things will need ATP so as to function in a normal manner.
They rely on the energy and materials of their host's cells for replication, otherwise they do not "use" energy since they are a non-living organism.
Viruses do reproduce. They use energy and produce waste. They are considered living organisms, yes.
Viruses are similar to living organisms because both contain hereditary material (RNA or DNA), and both reproduce. Viruses are different from living organisms because they do not use energy to grow, and do not use energy to respond to their surroundings.
yes and they obtain the materials of their host cell
Viruses are nonliving and cannot make their own food, and do not use their own energy to grow.
Viruses are non~living, plants are. Viruses do not make their own food, plants do. Viruses don't use their own energy to grow, plants, once again, do.
scientist classify viruses as dead this is because they are not made of cells, they cannot use energy, and they cannot make proteins
All organisms, from viruses to human beings, use ATP for metabolic energy.
All bacteria use their own ribosomes for protein synthesis while all viruses have to use their hosts' ribosomes. All bacteria have their own energy generation mechanisms (cellular respiration or photosynthesis) while all viruses have no intrinsic energy generation mechanisms.
Unlike organisms, viruses are not cellular, nor do they have ribosomes or any other organelles for protein production, energy generation, etc. They cannot capture or store free energy but can only use energy derived from their host. Also, viruses can only reproduce via the host and not on their own.
Viruses do not possess the necessary mechanisms to acquire nutrients, process them and use them for metabolism. Instead, they 'hijack' a host cell and use the mechanisms of the host cell to replicate itself.
Viruses do require energy however, they can only recieve it when they attach to a host cell.
they can only reproduce in a host cell
Viruses need a living host for reproduction. They, themselves, are not alive, so they must have a living host to provide the material to use for building duplicates, as well as for the energy to use in the production.
No. Viruses do not have a metabolism. They rely on a host to do that.This is why they are not considered "living" creatures, but bacteria are.
Viruses cannot reproduce on their own, and they don't make or use their own energy, both of which are qualifications an organism must meet to be considered alive.
viruses dot need energy.
they do not need energy, they find a host cell to give them energy
Viruses do not need energy, as they are completely dormant outside of a host cell. Once they come into contact with the host cell they use the host's energy to replicate themselves by graphing their own genetic code into the cell's. So in reality based on how they exist and function viruses don't' need to exert or gain energy.
