When a cell uses APT for energy, the APT is converted into ADP. Then the ADP is immediately recharged in mitochondria and comes out again as APT. This process happens over and over.
What is the function of ATP?
The function of APT is to produce high energy sugars. The function of ATP is to store energy within a cell. This way, energy within the body is not wasted, and can be stored for later use. ATP is the coin of metabolic reactions which produce energy. ...
Which bond in APT must be broken in order to release energy during cellular respiration?
The bond between the second and third phosphate groups is broken in order to release energy in order for the cell to do work. ...
When is energy released from a APT molecule?
I don't know what APT is, but ATP (adenosine triphosphate) releases energy when a phosphate group is removed from the rest of the ATP. When the bond that holds the phosphate group to the rest of the ATP is broken, it releases energy. The products are ADP (adenosine diphosphate) and a free phosphate group. ...

What command is used to install software from the internet on Linux?
That depends on the particular distribution. Debian-based distros (like Ubuntu) use apt-get: apt-get install packagename Fedora uses YUM: yum install packagename ...

What is the significance of active transport to the survival of a cell?
Active transport requires the expenditure of energy by the cells. It is an uphill movement of a substance through a living cell membrane. Adenosine triphosphate or ATP is a chemical substance that gives the energy required for the active transport process. ATP is produced in the mitochondria using energy from nutrients and is capable of releasing that energy to do work in the cell. There is a breakdown of APT and a use of energy that makes this process possible. Cellular energy...
