How Enzymes Catalyze Reactions Reaction Thermodynamics OBJECTIVES Be able to predict the spontaneity of a chemical reaction from the free energy change. Define the relationship between standard free energy and the equilibrium constant. Understand the differences between Δ G, Δ G o and, Δ G o ’. Describe the common features of the active sites of enzymes. Describe how enzymes accelerate the rate of reactions. Compare and contrast thermodynamics in closed and open systems. Define steady state. Be able to calculate Δ G 0 ’ for coupled reactions given the standard free energies OUTLINE Catalysts Differences between enzymes and other catalysts Measuring enzyme activity Reaction thermodynamics Reaction progression Gibbs Equation Steady state reactions or open systems How enzymes function Catalytic mechanisms Naming enzymes Coupled Reactions
