2 Energy Ability to do work Types of energy Potential Energy Energy of position For living organisms, potential energy is stored in chemical bonds Kinetic Energy Energy of motion Breaking of chemical bonds in various life processes. Activation Energy Energy necessary to trigger a chemical reaction Lighted match held to a piece of paper
3 Energy All living things require energy. Necessary for carrying out all life processes - building, repairing, growing, and reproducing. Energy comes from food (glucose) Energy is stored in glucose bonds - potential energy No organism can make energy - comes from the sun. Law of Conservation of Energy -Energy can be neither created nor destroyed, but can only be changed from one form to another.
4 EnergyOrganisms divided into 2 groups according to the way they get their food. Autotrophs –organisms that can combine inorganic molecules into organic molecules for use as food; make their own food Heterotrophs -organisms that don't make their own food but depend directly on other organisms for food.
5 Energy Energy is not recycled, matter is recycled Energy available for use decreases with each transformation Some of the energy used to break bonds and some is lost as heat. New energy must be constantly supplied - must come from sunlight. Materials used in producing new molecules can be reused.
6 Energy Energy processes of living organisms Photosynthesis Process in which carbon dioxide and water is used to form glucose. Requires light energy from the sun. Takes place in the presence of chlorophyll. Respiration Process in which glucose molecule is broken down and chemical energy it contains is released. Carbon dioxide and water released. Performed by all cells - releases energy of food
7 Adenosine Triphosphate Usable energy from by one reaction may be stored by another molecule and used in a later reaction. Many times the storage molecule for the released energy is ATP.
8 Adenosine Triphosphate Composed of 3 parts Adenine - a nitrogen base Ribose - a 5-carbon sugar Three (3) phosphate groups Adenine joins with ribose to form adenosinePhosphate groups attach in sequence to adenosine Adenosine monophosphate - AMP - 1 phosphate group Adenosine diphosphate - ADP - 2 phosphate groups Adenosine triphosphate - ATP - 3 phosphate groups
10 Adenosine Triphosphate High energy bonds form between the phosphate groups - indicated by a wavy line (~) Requires a great deal of energy to form bond.Energy is released when bond is broken. ATP - A - P ~ P ~ P ADP - A - P ~ P
11 Adenosine Triphosphate Normally reaction is cyclic - moves between ADP and ATP Controls the cell's production through cycle of energy storage and release. ADP + P + energy ---> ATP - energy is stored ATP ---> ADP + P + energy - energy is released Normally cell does not use ADP as energy source; ADP not converted to AMP
12 PhotosynthesisProcess by which green plants convert the sun's light energy into chemical energy stored as food in the form of glucose. Photo - means "light" Synthesis - means "to build a complex substance from simple substances"
13 Photosynthesis Raw materials - the reactants of the reaction Carbon dioxide - CO2 Water - H2O Light energy
14 PhotosynthesisProductsGlucose - C6H12O6 Oxygen - O2 Water - H2O
15 Photosynthesis Chlorophyll is necessary Acts as a catalyst - causes the reaction to move forward.Pigment in green plants that gives them their color Primary light absorbing pigment of green plants.
16 PhotosynthesisRepresented by the following reaction: chlorophyll 6 CO H2O + light > C6H12O6 + 6 O2 + 6 H2O
17 PhotosynthesisProcess is series of reactions that change reactants to the products - divided into 2 main reactions Light Reactions - require light energy Dark Reactions - Do not require light energy
18 LightSunlight is white light; mixture of different wavelengths of light Each wavelength of light has a characteristic color - Colors that make up white light can be separated by prism to produce the visible part of the spectrum- ROYGBIV –Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet Shorter the wavelength of light, the more energy it hasBlue – shorter wavelengths; more energyRed – longer wavelengths; less energy
20 LightObjects appear to be a certain color because they transmit or reflect light of that color. Colors absorbed by an object are not seen Color of object is the wavelength of light that is reflected or transmitted by the object. Plants appear green because they reflect green light and absorb other colors of light.
22 Plant PigmentsPrimary pigment in plants that absorbs light energy is chlorophyll Green in color - reflects green wavelengths Absorbs mainly red and blue wavelengths of light Act as catalysts to speed the reaction of photosynthesis. Types Chlorophyll aChlorophyll bChlorophyll cChlorophyll dBacteriochlorophyll
23 Plant PigmentsAccessory Pigments - may be used to transfer some energy to chlorophyllTypesCarotenoids - yellow, brown and orange pigments of plantsCaroteneXanthophyllPhycobilins - accessory pigments of red algae and blue-green bacteriaNot normally visible in tree leaves - masked by chlorophyll; appear when chlorophyll production ceases
24 Chloroplasts Organelle in plant cells where photosynthesis occurs. Contain the Chlorophyll pigment. Structure Grana - tiny stacked structures in the chloroplasts Contains the chlorophyll Also contains the accessory pigments. Site of light reactions Stroma - protein-rich solution around the grana Site of dark reaction
26 Light Reactions Chlorophyll traps the light energy Causes chlorophyll molecules to become energized; electrons released from molecule Two different photosystems active in photosynthesis Photosystem I Photosystem II Water molecules are split and oxygen is released. Energy is stored in ATP and NADPH2 (electron acceptor) Both used in the Dark Reactions Supply the energy for the Dark Reactions
28 Dark ReactionsLight is not required; energy comes from ATP and NADPH2; Called the Calvin cycleCarbon dioxide bonds to 5-carbon sugar called ribulose diphosphate, RuDP - forms unstable 6-carbon compound6-carbon compound immediately breaks down into two 3-carbon molecule of phosphoglyceric acid, PGA.Each PGA reacts with hydrogen atoms in NADPH2 to produce 3-carbon molecule of phosphoglyceraldehyde, PGAL, water reformedTwo molecules of PGAL combine to produce glucose molecule.Some PGAL used to reform RuDP.
35 Stages of Aerobic Respiration Glycolysis - AnaerobicKreb’s (Citric Acid)Cycle - AerobicElectron Transport Chain - Aerobic
36 Glycolysis First stage of respiration; occurs outside the mitochondria Does not require oxygen.Glucose breaks down into two 3-carbon molecules of pyruvic acidRequires 2 molecules of ATP to supply activation energyProduces 4 molecules of ATP; net gain of 2 ATP'sPyruvic acid can go in two directions - depends on of organism type and oxygen availabilityAerobic respiration - oxygen requiredAnaerobic respiration - oxygen not needed
39 Aerobic Phases Divided into two major reactions Citric acid cycle (Krebs Cycle) Electron Transport Chain
40 Citric Acid CyclePyruvic acid loses a carbon dioxide forms 2-carbon molecule that enters cycle. Process takes place in the mitochondria Hydrogen atoms released during the cycle - will carry electrons to the next reactions2 molecules of ATP are produced
42 Electron Transport Chain Involves a series of electron acceptors Accepts electrons and H ions from NADH &FADH 24 hydrogen atoms produce 24 electrons and 24 hydrogen ions form 12 pairs of hydrogen ions and 12 pairs of electrons Near end of chain 12 molecules of hydrogen bond with 6 oxygen molecules to produce 12 molecules of water. 32 molecules of ATP produced
44 Summary of ATP Production In Aerobic Respiration Glycolysis ATP Citric Acid Cycle ATP Electron Transport 32 ATPTotal ATP
45 Anaerobic RepirationOccurs when cell obtains energy from breakdown of food molecules in the absence of oxygen Also known as FermentationFirst step similar to aerobic respiration - glucose converted to pyruvic acid - glycolysis Types of Fermentation Alcoholic Fermentation Lactic Acid Fermentation
46 Alcoholic Fermentation Pyruvic acid is converted to ethyl alcoholMost of the energy is still stored in the alcohol.Summary equation:enzymesC6H12O > 2 C2H5OH + 2 CO2 + 2 ATPIndustries that depend on alcoholic fermentation Baking - carbon dioxide; makes bread rise. Brewing - ethyl alcohol in alcoholic beverages
48 Lactic Acid Fermentation Occurs in muscle tissue especially during heavy exercise Blood can't bring oxygen fast enough; lactic acid builds up causing soreness (cramps); muscles go into oxygen debt. Summary equation: enzymes C6H12O > 2 CH3CHOHCOOH + 2 ATP
