We build protein molecules—amino acids In 2 nd law of energy, entropy always increases. Life can violate that by spending energy (build a molecule) We use kinetic energy to decrease entropy Every bond we break releases kinetic energy Exergonic reactions are spontaneous (will happen on their own) Endergonic reactions are non-spontaneous (will not occur on their own w/o extra help)

    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.
