Intro to Energy Transfers ch 5 & 6 - Whole idea of exercise is to transfer energy so that we can perform work. - Exercise is a type of work - The most important type of energy we talk about is potential energy- stored energy to do work. - Stored potential energy/ molecule in our body is ATP. - Exercise potential energy molecules include carbs and fats as well. - Proteins are very rarely used to make ATP. - Food is used to refuel what we have used. - Exergonic rxns release heat. - Ex: sweat. This helps the body prevent over heating - Chemical and transport work - Chemical work describes how we store our macromoleculues - Transport work describes ion transport - Enzymes are very important and rxns can go without enzymes but the work is not done efficiently. - Coenzymes are usually vitamins and minerals. B vitamins are mostly coenzymes to turn on our processes. - Substrate is built to interact with a specific enzyme. (substrate specific) - Pharmaceuticals are created to mess with that or super bind to the substrate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
