ATP is converted into ADP when energy is needed by an organism. If water were not available in the mitochondria, what would most likely happen?

    A.Photosynthesis would increase. B.The organism would lose oxygen. C.Alcohol fermentation would begin. Cleavage would be prevented.

    what processes of glucose metabolism need oxygen? (i.e. aerobic processes)

    the question has to do with the cleavage of phosphoanhydride bonds of ATP which provide organisms with energy. What is the reaction that separates the phosphate from ATP?

    do you know what type of reaction forms ADP from ATP?

    it's called hydrolysis hydro= water lysis=cleavage so in order to cleave a phosphate from ATP you need water

    B. "an organism would lose oxygen". this does not even begin to make sense, how would the organism lose oxygen haha um i guess they mean that without being able to use the energy available from ATP it would not be able to breathe? C. fermentation is a glucose metabolism process that occurs in the absence of oxygen, it still requires ATP

    oh good luck! if you want some fun review go to youtube and search "crash course" and go to the biology playlist, it's pretty entertaining.
