Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Anatomy and Physiology Chapter 2 Body uses chemistry in all underlying actions. Chemistry can be broken down into two components: Basic chemistry and Biochemistry Part One: Basic Chemistry 2.1 Matter and Energy  Matter is anything with mass that takes up space: can be seen, smelled or felt. o Weight is mass + gravity effects  Three states of matter: Solid, Liquid, Gas  Energy is the ability to do work or move matter o does not have mass, or take up any space o More work done, more energy it takes  Kinetic vs Potential o Energy’s two forms:  Kinetic – Energy in action  Potential – stored energy o Energy Can be changed from potential to kinetic  Stored energy released, resulting in action  Forms of energy o Chemical: stored in chemical bonds o Electrical: movement of charged particles o Mechanical: directly moves matter o Electromagnetic or Radiant: travels in waves  Energy can be converted between certain forms 2.2 Atoms and Elements  Matter is made up of elements o Substances that cannot be broken down into smaller substances by ordinary chemical procedures  Carbon, Oxygen, Hydrogen and Nitrogen make up 96% of the body  Isotopes: o Structural variation of one element o Same number of protons but different numbers of neutrons  Radioisotopes: isotopes that decompose to stable forms o Atom would lose some subatomic pa
