What processes produce the most energy necessary for living?

The majority of energy required for living processes is provided by photosynthesis and cellular metabolism (including anaerobic processes). The food web's lowest level is made up of plants and algae.



This begs the question: Where does the energy that powers our lives come from?

3.1 The Sun is the main source of energy for organisms as well as the ecosystems they make up. Producers such as plants, algae and cyanobacteria make organic matter out of carbon dioxide and water using the energy from the sun.

Also, find out what energy is used for. Nearly all living things use ATP and glucose for energy. ATP is used inside cells to fuel life processes. Glucose can be used to store and transport energy.

Similarly, what is the energy storage process?

Making and using food. Photosynthesis is the process by which energy flows through living organisms. This process stores the energy obtained from sunlight in the chemical bond of glucose. Cellular respiration is the process by which glucose is broken down into ATP.

How can each organism obtain the energy it requires to live its essential life processes?

Level: Essential Cellular respiration is a process that transforms stored energy in food molecules into usable fuel. Organisms use the energy to carry out their daily lives.
