What you need to know for midterm #1: Thermodynamics: You must know what G and G 0 are and what they mean. What does spontaneous mean? You must know the different contributions of enthalpy and entropy to free energy. You must know what entropy means and how it affects the spontaneity of a reaction. You must know the relationship between G 0 and K and G and G 0 I will give you the equations you need to know how to use them. You need to be able to calculate K given G 0 and vice versa. You need to calculate G from G 0 and initial concentrations. You need to understand things conceptually as well. You need to know why phosphoesters are “high energy” why ATP is the energy currency of the cell. You must be able to put together coupled reaction pairs and calculate G 0 for such couples. General chemistry and organic chemistry review: You must be able to recognize and identify the common functional groups. You must be able to recognize acid base and redox reactions. We’ll get to Sn1 and Sn2 reactions later. You must be able to recognize nucleophiles and electrophiles. Water:
