    I don't understand this spec point;
    Describe how phosphorylation of ADP requires energy and how hydrolysis of ATP provides an immediate supply of energy for biological processes.

    How would you "describe" it and how much detail is needed to know? Is it talking about both cyclic and non cyclic? What are the main points needed because the textbook does not really get straight to the point :sad:

    Thank you so much to anyone who is able to help :hugs:

    Okay so I found some notes on this topic, is there anything I need to add or know more about in regards to this spec point?

    Energy needed?
    - 3rd phosphate broken via hydrolysis and catalysed by ATPase (enzyme)
    - Produces; ADP + Pi + ENERGY

    Reversible reaction
    Energy for synthesis of ATP comes from catabolic reactions or redox reactions
    - ATP immediate supply
