A molecule of ATP contains adenine, ribose, and three phosphate groups. The bond between the last two phosphates is easily broken, resulting in a molecule of ADP and one phosphate group. If the bond between the second and third phosphate groups were more stable, what would be the most likely consequence? Answer More energy would be required to break the bond, so the net energy produced would be less. Once the bond between the phosphate groups is broken the net energy released would increase. The bond between the first and second phosphates would have to be broken to

OpenStudy (blues):

It's the first option. Stable bonds take a lot of energy to break (if it only took a little energy to break a bond, it would be easily broken and therefore unstable) and, RELATIVE to that investment of energy, the energy released would be smaller even though it wouldn't change in absolute extent.
