The energy that forms as a result of cellular respiration is used in all kinds of chemical reactions that take place in the body, and these are called metabolic reactions. Find out how ATP is used for chemical reactions with help from a science teacher and field biologist in this free video on biology.

Hi, I'm Brian with ericksontutoring.blogspot.com and today we're going to be discussing how the energy from respiration is used. So cellular respiration, the, the ultimate end product of it is the formation of energy in the form of ATP and it generates a lot of energy. So ATP, as I just mentioned is, is use to store energy and the way that it stores it is in bonds between two phosphi groups. When that, when that bond is broken you release a ton of energy and that energy is use in all sorts of different chemical reactions that takes place in the body or if you're not a person, inside the organism. These are called metabolic reactions or metabolism; so ATP is use for all sorts of chemical reactions inside an organism. This was a brief discussion of how the energy from respiration is used.
