ATP(adenosine triphosphate) is the energy currency of cells. Just as you use coins to purchase all sorts of products, a cell uses ATP to carry out nearly all of its activities. Cells use the readily accessible energy supplied by ATP to provide energy wherever it is needed. ATP contains three phosphate groups that are negatively charged and repel one another. ATP easily loses the last phosphate group because the breakdown products. That phosphate group is removed by hydrolysis and become ADP and releases energy. What are two types of nucleic acids and how do they differ? The two types of nucleic acids are DNA( deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA( ribonucleic acid). DNA contains deoxyribose sugar and is the chemical that makes up our genes. It is also a double stranded and shaped like a double helix. The two standards of DNA are joined by complementary base pairing: Adenine pairs with thymine, and guanine pairs with cytosine. Wheres RNA serves as a helper to DNA during protein synthesis. Its sugar is ribose, and it

Unformatted text preview: contains the base uracil in place of thymine. RNA is single stranded and thus does not form a double mix. Where do we get the majority of our energy?What are some problem associated with these sources of energy? What are some of the possible renewable energy sources that are being developed and what problems do they have? Most of the worlds energy is supplied by the burning of fossil fuels, a nonrenewable source. The burning of fossil fuels causes pollutant and gases to enter the air. Burning fossil fuels and burning to clear land for farming adds CO2, a various means. Renewable energy sources include wind power, hydropower, geothermal energy, and solar energy. Wind power requires a lot of land coverage for it to be developed, Hydropower development which involves the building of enormous dams, and solar energy development are still very costly....
