Overall Chemical Reaction For all of Cellular Respiration C 6 H 12 O 6 + 6 O 2 --- 6 CO 2 + 6 H 2 O Overall free energy = 687 kcal/mol or 3.8 kcal/g Not really that efficient (Stay tuned for the actual)

Energy Transfer follows thermodynamic laws Gibbs helmholtz ΔG = ΔH – TΔS Enthalpy Entropy – Remember ΔS universe > 0 is a spontaneous process Overall if ΔG < 0 the process is spontaneous ΔG = -RTlnK Relates ΔG to equilibrium ΔG are additive State function Overall ΔG has to be – for a process to be spontaneous

Le Chatelier’s Principle and ΔG Remember Le Chatelier and affect on equilibrium If one reaction has a positive ΔG, but the next reaction, which is in equilibrium has a negative ΔG , the first reaction can be pulled through Many examples of this in glycolysis
