    CHAPTER 13 Principles of Bioenergetics. Living cells and organisms must perform work to stay alive, to grow, and to reproduce themselves. The ability to harness energy from various sources and to channel it into biological work is a fundamental property of all living organisms; it must have been acquired very early in the process of cellular evolution. Gain a working knowledge of thermodynamics and kinetics with a minimum of mathematics-a guide for individuals in the biological sciences An understanding of thermodynamics and kinetics is essential for researchers investigating molecular phenomena in diverse disciplines, including bioorganic chemistry, medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, and biology. 4. Explain Gibbs free energy and describe obtainable work from a system. 5. Describe how systems reach equilibrium using thermodynamic parameters. Course Outline: This is an introductory thermodynamics course for students in engineering disciplines that focus on biological systems. The tentative class schedule is below. It is subject to change.

Thermodynamics is a branch of physics that deals with heat and temperature, and their relation to energy, work, radiation, and properties of behavior of these quantities is governed by the four laws of thermodynamics which convey a quantitative description using measurable macroscopic physical quantities, but may be explained in terms of microscopic constituents by statistical.

A thermodynamics of both nonequilibrium and complex systems is needed for their description. In this book, the foundations of such a thermodynamics are presented. Biological processes at the cellular level are considered as coupled chemical reactions and transport processes across internal and the cytoplasmic membrane.

Thermodynamics is unreasonably effective in the biological setting, but effective it is.

Westerhoff and Karel van Dam. Country of Publication: Netherlands Publisher: Amsterdam ; New York: Elsevier ; New York, NY, USA: Sole distributors for the USA and Canada, Elsevier Science Pub. Co.,   The change in free energy when a reaction occurs is ΔG = ΔH - TΔS assuming the temperature does not change.

Temperature in a biochemical system in general changes very slowly, so this is a reasonable assumption. Gibbs was able to show that a chemical reaction will occur spontaneously if and only if the change in free energy is negative: ΔG.
