Energy in the Cell Energy is in two basic forms: 1. potential energy, which is energy stored up, ready to use, like a coiled spring, the capacity to do.

Respiration Respiration is generating energy by breaking down food molecules, converting the energy in their chemical bonds to ATP energy. Before oxygen was present in the atmosphere, all cells used anaerobic respiration, which means generating energy in the absence of /acetyl CoA converted to carbon dioxide (aerobic). 3. electron transport: high energy electrons converted to ATP (aerobic). Aerobic respiration yields 34 more ATPs per glucose, giving a total of 36 ATPs generated from each glucose. All but 2/
