Materials are able to move across a cell membrane through one of two methods: active transport or passive transport. What is the difference between active transport and passive transport? a Active transport requires the cell to form vesicles, while passive transport requires the use of membrane pumps. b Passive transport is the only form of transport that requires the use of proteins. c Active transport is the only form of transport that requires the use of proteins. d Active transport requires the cell to expend energy, while passive transport does not.

Where is chemical energy contained in a compound

Answer: Bonds.

Explanation:

The energy of the compounds lies in the bonds present in the compound. Energy is released from the compounds when the bonds are broken.

Example: Adenosine triphosphte is hydrolyzed and adenosine diphosphate and inorganic phosphate is produced. This process releases energy by the breakdown of bonds which is used for carrying various metabolic processes of the body.

Hence, the chemical energy is stored in the bods of the compounds.
