THE STORY OF CELL ENERGY
Cells directly use the molecule ________ for energy. Cells store energy in molecules by _____________ bonds and release energy by ____________ bonds. Autotrophs (plants) use the _________ as a source of energy for making food molecules like __________ and heterotrophs(animals) use ____________ as a source of energy to make ATP molecules. To get the energy needed to make food (sugar) molecules, plants must absorb light using a _______________. The pigment used in photosynthesis is called ________________ and captures energy by absorbing red, and blue-violet types of light, while plants get their color by reflecting _____________ light. To get the energy needed to make ATP molecules, _____________organisms take the food molecules produced or ingested from plants or other animals and break them down in the process of ___________________. With the help of inhaled _______________, organisms break down sugars and make ATP molecules to use to power cell processes.
