ea tinn Startin Frnduct quotJ39EFH39E There are two kinds of metabolic pathways 1 Catabolic pathways release energy by breaking down complex molecules to simpler compounds a EX glucose is broken down to C02 amp water in the presence of oxygen cellular respiration 2 Anabolic pathways consume energy to build complicated molecules from simpler compounds a Aka biosynthetic pathways b Ex synthesis of protein from amino acids 0 The energy released by catabolic pathways can be stored and then used to drive anabolic pathways Different Kinds of Energy 0 Energy exists in various forms and cells transform it from one type to another 0 Kinetic energy associated with the relative motion of objects 0 HeatThermal energy form of kinetic energy associate with the random movement of atoms or molecules thus generating and producing heat 0 Potential energy energy due to location or structure high off the ground level high RE 0 Chemical energy form of potential energy stored in molecules

unchanging Free energy can tell us whether the reaction is spontaneous or not 0 If AG is positive reaction is not spontaneous needs input of energy to proceed 0 If AG is negative reaction is spontaneous no input of energy is needed Can only be spontaneous amp perform work if moving toward equilibrium 0 AG G final state G initial state Free energy measure system s instability and tendency

reaction that releases energy AG is negative 0 AG represents maximum amount of possible work from reaction 0 Endergonic nonspontaneous reactions that absorbs energy from its surroundings AG is
