September 23, 2005 Energy and Life Heterotrophs – consumers (carbon source-organic molecules, energy source is ) Autotrophs – producers, aka plants, use Co2 and H20 to create organic molecules o Sunlight (photoautotroph) o Chemical (chemoautotroph) Types of Energy Chemical energy Potential energy Kinetic energy Heat/thermal enrgy Light energy Electrical energy Work Laws of Thermodynamics 1-Conservation of Energy – Energy cannot be created nor destroyed. It can be converted. o Common Unit for measuring energy: JOULE Joule: exert 1N force x 1meter Electrical: move 1 coulumb of charge through 1 volt. 1V = 1J Power: 1 watt of power for 1 sec = 1J Heat: calories (amount of heat required to raise the temperature of 1g h20 by 1 degree celcius. o 1 N is amount of energy it takes to raise the apple one meter o 100 gram apple, 90% water, 10% glucose, 1 mol glucose=180 g glucose o 1 mole glucose + O2 CO2 + H20 38, 111 CALORIES (0.06 moles/apple)38,111,4.18)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
