The purpose of cellular respiration is to gather electrons from organic compounds (glucose) and use that energy to make a molecule called ATP (Adenosine tri-phosphate). Once the energy is gathered it is stored in the chemical bonds of ATP. ATP is used to provide energy for most of the immediate work that the cell does.
