You are all sleepy. You all need some ATP, NADH, and NAD+. Eat an apple for some glucose!
Oh, so we need Glucose to make Pyruvic Acid, now that's Amazing!
Our bodies need Glucose through a process named Glycolysis to create Pyruvic Acid! ATP, NADH, and NAD+ are products of Cellular Respiration.
But what is Pyruvic Acid Ms.Johnson?
Ms.Johnson what is the Krebs Cycle?
and What's the Electron Transport Chain?
Sally, Pyruvic Acid is a Organic Acid we create after Glycolysis for the second step of Cellular Respiration, the Krebs Cycle which leads into the Electron Transport Chain.
Where does this all take place?
Is ATP scientifically related to the subject of ADP and ATP Synthase, Ms.Johnson?
The Krebs Cycle and Electron Transport Chain are part of Cellular Respiration a process we go through, it uses Oxygen and Foods we eat to get ATP and waste products like Water and Carbon Dioxide
Sally, During cellular respiration, the cell is able to reattach a phosphate onto the ADP molecule, making new ATP.
Ms.Johnson and John, what are the roles of ELectrons and Hydrogen in this?
This all takes place in the Cytoplasm and Mitochondria of the Cell. ATP and ADP both play important roles in providing cellular energy. ATP synthase is an enzyme that creates the energy storage molecule ADP.
Oh I didn't know that, i'm going to go eat a apple so I can obtain Energy!
I will as well, Thank you Ms.Johnson for this Great Lesson!
Well Sally, In the third stage of cellular respiration occurs when the energy-rich hydrogen atoms are separated into protons [H+] and energy-rich electrons in the electron transport chain.
