Expert Answer:

Functions of ATP and ADP:
  • Adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) both play a significant role in providing cellular energy.
  • When the cell needs to perform work, it removes a phosphate from ATP, releasing energy. This leaves ADP and a free phosphate left over. 
  • With the addition of another phosphate group, ADP is converted to ATP for the storage of energy during cell metabolism.
