    • The Energy of the Universe is constant. It comprises the the systemic change in energy and the surrounding change in energy.
    • Image Upload 1
  2. Describe the Entropy of the universe:
    • The entropy (disorder) of the universe is increasing. This can also be said that:
    • Image Upload 2
  3. Describe the relation between The change in energy and the change in disorder:
    Image Upload 3
  4. What can the ideal Gibbs free energy for a reaction be defined as?
    Image Upload 4
  5. What is the difference between these two symbols:
    Image Upload 5
    Image Upload 6
    • Image Upload 7 is the change in energy under ideal conditions.

    Image Upload 10

    • Image Upload 11
    • Image Upload 12
  10. What is the Image Upload 13 
    • It is the phosphorylation Potential.
    • Net Exergonic.
    • Ideal is -30.5 kJ/mol
  11. Describe the change in energy when bonds break:
    Bonds breaking always requires energy, thus it is endergonic.
  12. Describe the change in energy when bonds form:
    When bonds are formed unstable participants enter into stable forms. Entering this more stable form allows them to have a lower energy state. This is always Exergonic.
  13. If:
    Image Upload 14 What is:
    Image Upload 15?
    Image Upload 16
  14. What is pyrophosphate?
    Image Upload 17
  15. Which would be more exergonic, the hydrolysis of ATP into ADP and phosphate, or into AMP and pyrophosphate?
    • ATP into AMP and Pyrophosphate.
    • Comparing the ideal delta G:
    • ADP+P:AMP+PP
    •   -30.5:-45.6
    •        2:3
  16. Generally will have more or less resonance forms make a product more exergonic?
    • More resonance=more stable.
    • more stable=lower delta G.
  17. does sulfur make strong or weak pi Bonds?
    weak pi bonds.
  18. What is the role and final change in energy for an adenylate kinase reaction?
    Image Upload 18
  19. Would ATP into ADP+P or GTP into GDP+P be more exergonic?
    They would be energetically identical because all NTP's are more or less energetically identical.
