Hydrogen bonds are at the very core of life as we know it, and now for the first time ever
scientists have managed to visualize these transient molecular associations. A

1. Metabolic pathways: catabolic, anabolic, Laws of thermodynamics.
2. Delta G, H and S. What do they represent?
Unstable (more order, uneven
Positive, non-spontaneous, endergonic
The second law of thermodynamics states that energy has the tendency to disperse unless it is
inhibited from doing so. The reason the second law is essential to the understanding of entropy is
because it explains its basics. However, entropy is loosely de
Entropy is like randomness, the more molecules/moles you have or the more disorder, the more
chances of random it can be. So, for example, when you start off with two moles of reactants and
end up making 3 as products, you've just increased the entropy, t
Enzyme Lab write up reminders:
Plot all data points for each time point: in the catalase folder.
Do a scatter plot.
Draw the best fit curve through the data points.
Label both axes with what is being measured and units.
