3 Organization of the Chemistry of Life into Metabolic Pathways A metabolic pathway begins with a specific molecule and ends with a productEach step is catalyzed by a specific enzymeCatabolic pathways release energy by breaking down complex molecules into simpler compoundsCellular respiration, the breakdown of glucose in the presence of oxygen, is an example of a pathway of catabolismAnabolic pathways consume energy to build complex molecules from simpler onesThe synthesis of protein from amino acids and photosynthesis are examples of anabolismBioenergetics is the study of how organisms manage their energy resourcesEnzyme 1Enzyme 2Enzyme 3ABCDReaction 1Reaction 2Reaction 3StartingmoleculeProduct
4 Forms of EnergyKinetic Energy – energy of motion; heat (thermal energy) is kinetic energy associated with the random movement of atoms or moleculesPotential Energy – stored energy; the energy that matter possesses because of its location or structureChemical Energy – refers to the potential energy available for release in chemical reactions

6 Laws of Energy Transformation Thermodynamics – Study of the energy transformationsFirst Law of Thermodynamics – The energy of the universe is constant. Energy/Matter can be transferred and transformed, but it cannot be created of destroyedSecond Law of Thermodynamics – Every energy transfer of transformation increases the entropy (disorder/randomness) of the universe. Ordered forms of energy are at least partly converted to heat.CO2H2OHeatFigure 8.3 The two laws of thermodynamicsCO2+H2OChemicalenergy(a) First law of thermodynamics(b) Second law of thermodynamics
