Mitochondria are the organelles that converts sugar into energy in form of ATP.


Two organelles that contain enzymes and their functions are: Mitochondria - produce energy for the cells Lysosomes - break down enzymes in the cells


Lysosomes are organelles in animal cells that help break down substances. These substances are usually waste materials and cellular debris.


There are two different organelles that convert energy in plants. One is the chloroplast, which uses energy from sunlight as well as water and carbon dioxide to produce carbohydrates, which store energy. When plants need to use the energy stored in their carbohydrates, they break down the carbohydrates into water and CO2 using organelles called mitochondria.


The breakdown of sugar (mainly glucose) is called glycolysis and occurs in the cytoplasm of a cell. The product of glycolysis is pyruvate, which is used to make ATP energy by the Krebs Cycle in the mitochondria.



All living organisms break down molecules to produce energy.



Lysosomes do not produce steroid hormones. Lysosomes are organelles in cells that break down waste materials and debris inside the cell.


Yes, prokaryotic cells break down molecules to produce energy.


They use LYSOSOMES, those break down nutrients and MITOCHANDRIA, produce energy.


Most organisms break down sugar to produce usable energy through the process of cellular respiration.


Most organisms break down sugar to produce usable energy through the process of cellular respiration.



Both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms break down molecules to produce energy.


they absorb sunlight and produce energy.Chloroplasts produce glucose using light energy. Mitochondria break down glucose to release energy


muscles use chemical energy in glucose , as the bonds in glucose break, chemical energy changes to mechanical energy and the muscle contracts.. well there you go that how you produce mechanical energy :)


Yes. Lysosomes break down organelles that have outlived their usefulness.


Yes. Lysosomes break down organelles that have outlived their usefulness.


Lysosomes use acid to break down waste, old cell organelles and other materials that the cell no longer needs.


Energy is the key for any reaction to take place. To break the bonds of a substance, a fixed amount of energy is required which is called bond energy. For some substances the bond energy is low and they do not require external energy and start reaction on their on there own whereas for some substances we have to provide external energy for the reaction to take place.


Photolysis of water produce Oxygen. This is the main byproduct.


It is the mitochondria. Process is called respirastion


D.Yes, they make glucose and break it down to produce ATP.
