Name _____________________________ UIN ___________________ Biochemistry 411 Quiz 1 1.) Consider the following net reaction: Phosphoenolpyruvate + ADP Pyruvate + ATP Using the following information: Phosphoenolpyruvate Pyruvate + Pi Δ G ° = -61.9 kJ/mol ADP + Pi ATP Δ G ° = +30.5 kJ/mol (a) ( 2 Points ) What is the standard free energy change for this net reaction based on the given information? Answer: (-61.9 kJ/mol) + (+30.5 kJ/mol) = -31.4 kJ/mol (b) ( 2 Points ) How would the equilibrium constant (K eq ) be calculated for the coupled reaction? Answer: Δ G ° = -RTln(K eq ) 2.) ( 3 Points ) Define the following terms and give their designated symbols
