6.1 What Physical Principles Underlie Biological Energy Transformations? All forms of energy can be placed in two categories: Potential energy is stored energy—as chemical bonds, concentration gradient, charge imbalance, etc. Kinetic energy is the energy of movement.

6.1 What Physical Principles Underlie Biological Energy Transformations? Metabolism : sum total of all chemical reactions in an organism Anabolic reactions : complex molecules are made from simple molecules; energy input is required. Catabolic reactions : complex molecules are broken down to simpler ones and energy is released.

6.1 What Physical Principles Underlie Biological Energy Transformations? Second Law of Thermodynamics : When energy is converted from one form to another, some of that energy becomes unavailable to do work. No energy transformation is 100 percent efficient.
