AP Biology Ch 9 Respiration Part 1 p. 159 -164 Name: Jason Shah 1. Distinguish between autotrophs and Heterotrophs. How do they fit into the food  chain? Autotrophs are organisms that convert energy into chemical energy Heterotrophs live on the energy produced by autotrophs Autotrophs   Heterotrophs in food chain 2. Distinguish between digestion and catabolism.  Which process is entirely  intracellular? Digestion is the process by which enzymes break larger molecules into smaller  molecules. Catabolism is the next stage where energy is obtained from C-H bonds Catabolism is completely intracellular. 3. Is the energy in C-H bonds potential or kinetic energy?  Why? The energy in C-H bonds is potential energy because the energy is stored in the covalent  bonds. 4. Why can’t cells accept heat as the only form of energy released as the C-H bonds  are broken? Into what form is it converted?  Because they cannot use the heat after it is released. So, they convert part of the energy  into ATP.

5. Review the structure of the ATP molecule.  Where is the energy stored? Compare  ATP, ADP and AMP as to structure and relative energy richness.
