Cellular Respiration

Postby madeleineamber » Fri Sep 14, 2012 2:46 pm

Just doing background study for a written assignment but cellular respiration isnt my strongest point could someone lend some advice on the chemical equation for the breakdown of ATP. Does the reaction release energy (exergonic/exothermic) or absorb energy (endergonic/endothermic)?
Much Appreciated

ATP + H2O -> ADP + Pi + E

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
