What is anabolic and catabolic?

*constructive process,complex substances are synthesised from simple substances,"ATP"requiring process.

*destructive, simple substances are formed by the break down of complex substances,"ATP" releasing process.

What is endergonic ?

Smat said: (Sep 22, 2012)  
Endergonic means absorption of energy.

Synthesis means anabolism. Construction of complex molecule from simple one. Reduction means addition of h2 or removal of O2. Endergonic means takes reaction inside.

How is photosynthesis anabolic? it takes solar energy and uses it which makes it catabolic.

Mahnoor said: (Jul 27, 2013)  
How is it catabolic? it is a synthesizing process.

Teja said: (Sep 24, 2013)  
For easy remembrance, anabolism is a constructive process and catabolism is a destructive process.

K.Prasanthi said: (Dec 26, 2013)  
Photosynthesis means synthesis of compounds with the aid of radient energy.

Dhruvil said: (Jun 23, 2014)  
Catabolic reaction is the process which requires a catalyst for a particular chemical reaction and act as rate limiting step for synthesis. In case of photosynthesis sunlight act as catalyst for the plant during whole process to manufacture food for its own self. So right answer is C: Reductive, endergonic and catabolic.

what is carbohydrate?

Sam said: (Aug 5, 2014)  
It's a synthesis means - it is anabolic.

Endergonic - it's energy consuming.

What is the function of xanthophyll and stroma?

Mons said: (Jul 11, 2015)  
Anabolism is constructive process while Catabolism is destructive process.

Diksha Chauhan said: (Sep 29, 2015)  
What is reductive?

Reeta said: (Sep 17, 2016)  
@Sam you made the point clear. Thank you.

Hrk said: (Dec 2, 2016)  
Thanks @SAM.

Ritu said: (Mar 25, 2017)  
Photosynthesis is an energy releasing process.

Lochan Sharma said: (Apr 1, 2017)  
How it could be anabolic process?

Akshara said: (Jun 15, 2018)  
What is exergonic? Explain clearly please.

Robel Goitom said: (May 16, 2020)  
Exergonic means a reaction releasing energy for example respiration.
