Module 8: Bioenergetics
Activities in this resource module will expand student understanding of kinetic and potential energy in chemical reaction by applying these principles to biological processes such as photosynthesis and oxidation coupled with the making of ATP. In addition, they can explore the conversion of the chemo-osmotic (electric) potential to chemical bonds of ATP.
THE PHYSICAL SETTING:THE STRUCTURE OF MATTER - The rate of reactions among atoms and moecules depends on how often they encounter one another, which is affected by the concentration, pressure and temperure of the reacting materials.
Physical Science: Chemical Reactions - Catalysts, such as metal surfaces, accelerate chemical reactions.
Life-Science: Matter, energy aand organization - The chemical bonds of food molecules contain energy.
Physical-Science: Matter Structue/Properties - Atoms interact with one another by transferring or sharing electrons that are furthest from the nucleus.
Physical-Scienc: Matter Structure/Properies - Bonds between atoms are created when electrons are paired up.
