Biology Test Three An introduction to Metabolism CHAPTER 8 CHAPTER 54 Metabolism : the totality of an organism’s chemical reactions **emergent properties (as you go up a level, complexity increases) organization of the chemistry of life into a metabolic pathways -metabolic pathway has many steps 1. that begin with a specific molecule and end with a product 2. that … catabolic- pathways that release energy by breaking down complex molecules into simpler compounds ie. Cellular respiration anabolic- pathways that continue energy to build, larger complicated molecules from simpler ones ie: photosyntheseis, polymerization Energy - capacity to do work Expressed in kcal/mol 1. kinetic- energy of motion 2. potential- energy cells uses acquired energy to : -organization -carry out reaction thermal energy is a type of … KINETIC energy (due to motion) forms of energy 1. kinetic energy (motions of molecules) a. molecular motion 2. potential energy (stored energy; due to position, location or arrangement) a. stored in molecule structure b. foods is chemical energy c. electron in outer shell- more potential energy
