AP Biology Ch 8 Energy and Metabolism Intro RJ 6th ed. Name: Jason Shah This chapter serves as a basis for the next two which deal with cellular respiration and photosynthesis. Be sure you see the connection. Explain the difference between kinetic and potential energy and give an example of each different from the one in the text. Kinetic energy is energy of motion, while potential energy is stored energy. Rubber band flung from finger = kinetic energy Rubber band stretched on finger = potential energy Review oxidation and reduction and summarize why these processes are so essential to life. Oxidation is the process whereby an atom or molecule loses an electron, and reduction is the process whereby an atom or molecule gains an electron. Oxidation-reduction reactions always take place together. Important because this is how energy is transferred. State the first and second laws of thermodynamics and explain how each is relevant to biology. The First Law of Thermodynamics states that energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can only change from one form to another. – Relevant to biology
