Question: in rapidly contracting muscle the rate of atp utilization is...

Question details
  1. In rapidly contracting muscle, the rate of ATP utilization is approximately 3 micromol/s/g and the concentration of ATP at rest is 4.5 micromol per gram of tissue. The concentration of phosphocreatine in resting human muscle is about 20 micromol/g. How can phosphocreatine be useful during rapid muscle contraction? (No doubt you will want to calculate how long ATP will last in anaerobic muscles and compare it to how long phosphocreatine will last…)
