Where is chemical energy contained in a compound

Answer: Bonds.


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.

Plants need nitrate ions in order to make proteins. A plant is growing in soil flooded water. Explain why the plant cannot absorb enough nitrate ions.

Plants need nitrogen in order to form amino acids and absorb this in the form of nitrates from the soil. They do this with the help of their roots. In a waterlogged environment, roots start to decompose due to the lack of oxygen. This affects their nitrate absorption capacity and plant growth is stalled.
