The molecule Glucose contains the atoms Hydrogen, Carbon and Oxygen. The black spheres in my design are Carbon, the gray ones are Hydrogen, and the red ones are Oxygen. The cylinder connecting all the atoms is called a bond. Glucose is an important energy source and a sugar consumed by many living organisms. The molecular formula of Glucose is C₆H₁₂O₆. Since most cells in our body use glucose to properly work, it is very important to consume some type of glucose everyday. The main usage of glucose is in a process known as cellular respiration, which is a series of chemical reactions that uses glucose as a starting reactant in order to form ATP. ATP is a vital molecule that is used in your cells, and enables you to function. In addition, our body uses Glucose for energy.In conclusion, the molecule called Glucose is extremely beneficial for our body.
