How does ATP store energy for life's processes and how is it recycled?

(1) Answers

ATP stores energy in the form of a high energy phosphate bond which then joins the terminal phosphate group to the rest of the molecule. When the cell needs energy, it takes the ATP and converts it to ADP and phosphate. Rather than discarding them, they travel back to the mitochondria where they are recycled in order to produce another ATP!
