Unformatted text preview: reaction with a negative change in G-The change in G not only depends on the energy stored in each molecule, but also in the concentration of the molecules in the reaction mixture.-Cells exist in state of chemical disequilibrium-Equilibrium constant (K) = [x]/[y]: is directly proportional to the standard free energy change of the reaction-K indicated the strength of molecular interactions: Larger K, the stronger the binding energy, the energy released in the binding interaction (Greater the drop in free energy) -For sequential reactions, the changes in free energy are additive Vm= rate of reaction Km= substrate concentration-Activated carries: Store energy in an easily exchangeable form-ATP is synthesized in an energetically unfavorable phosphorylation reaction...
