Answer to Question #59779 in Cell Biology for Cheyenne

Question #59779
Why does ATP contain such a large amount of energy?
(please leave a more understandable answer for the lesser scientific mind please)
Expert's answer
The phosphate groups, which are the main constituents of ATP are negatively charged, causing a repulsion, which
contributes to instability at that end of the molecule. Therefore this molecule is like a compressed spring. So that
the energy released from its hydrolyses is sufficient.
