Whitlow’s BIO 101 Objectives:  Chapter 6 – Ground Rules of Metabolism Define: potential energy kinetic energy chemical energy State the first law of thermodynamics Explain the second law of thermodynamics , and how it affects living systems. Where is the energy within molecules located? What happens to much of this energy when it is converted from one form to another? Ultimately, where does most energy for life on earth come from? What is ATP ? Describe the structure of ATP, and where the energy within an ATP molecule is located. What are the products of ATP being broken down? Write the overall equation for photosynthesis. Identify the reactants and the products. What is activation energy ? Why is it important to living things?
