Equation is the nuclear reaction responsible for much of the helium-4 production in our Sun. How much energy is released in this reaction?
Day 1: Introduction to Energy I. What is Energy • Organisms acquire energy and use it in cells to perform daily functions • Energy can make (has the potential to make) certain actions occur or change conditions - Conditions such as; temperature, density, pressure, shape/volume, or chemical composition II. Cold and Energy • Endothermic animals have to generate their own heat - This requires energy • Acquisition of energy by animals: 1. Consumption of food 2. Intestines absorb energy molecules Use it for functions Store it as adipose of the body tissue (fat) A. White and Brown Adipose Tissue (Fat) • White Adipose Tissue: stores energy - Subcutaneous - Number of cel
