Living organisms use energy from the metabolism of food to
create an energy-rich molecule called adenosine triphosphate
(ATP). The ATP acts as an energy source for a variety of reactions
that the living organism must carry out to survive. ATP provides
energy through its hydrolysis, which can be symbolized as follows:
ATP(aq) + H2O(l ) ¡ ADP(aq) + Pi(aq) ΔGrxn ° = -30.5 kJ
where ADP represents adenosine diphosphate and Pi represents
an inorganic phosphate group (such as HPO42 - ).
