Why are thermodynamics important to cellular energetics?
because living organisms appear to reduce entropy, assembling small molecules into polymers and higher order structures. this work releases waste heat that increases the entry of the environment.
synthesize complex molecules from smaller ones
what type of reaction joined monomers into polymers?
condensation (a polypeptide chain formed from amino acids)
break down complex molecules into simpler ones
what type of reaction breaks polymers down to monomers?
hydrolysis (starch broken down into glucose)
are catabolic processes exergonic or endergonic?
Are anabolic processes exergonic or endergonic?
removes an electron from a compound (this compound's energy is lowered)
adds an electron to a compound (this compound's energy is increased)
Oxidation is Loss
Reduction is Gain
