Ok, whats hydrolysis, phosphorylation, the enzymes involved in phosphorylation and hydrolysis of ATP?

is it just asking for this: ATP+H2O→ADP+Pi ?

Thats the hydrolysis. Hydro(water)lysis(splitting). What enzyme is involved in this?

What is phosphorylation then, taking the hydrolysis equation into account?

where an enzyme causes a substrate molecule to gain a phosphate group from ATP?

Ok for the hydrolysis, the enzyme isn't gaining a phosphate group (think about the definition of an enzyme) what the enzyme for the hydrolysis is splitting ATP, this about the suffix of enzymes and what the enzyme is acting on and smash the two words together

Yes and the enzymes, so you have the hydrolysis equation as stated above, from what I have said above, what enzyme do you think is involved in the hydrolysis?

You're along the right lines so the 'prote' prefix is for proteins, what prefix do you think it will be for ATP?

ADP?
Ok, ill give you the answer, and you explain to me why it is named as such. The enzyme involved in the hydrolysis of ATP is ATPase.

Why is it called ATPase?
