Solution

The energy liberated during respiration is utilised for carrying out various life processes. Some of the energy liberated during the breakdown of the glucose molecule is in the form of heat, but a large part of it is converted into chemical energy called Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). Any activity inside the cell is carried out by the energy released by these ATP molecules.
