    4. 4. Exothermic <ul><li>Combustion is an example of an exothermic process. It is an exothermic chemical reaction (give out heat to the surroundings). E.g., Burning of coal </li></ul><ul><li>The common observation in these reactions is that oxygen combines with carbon to release heat. These chemicals like coal or butane are known as fuels. Most of the fuels contain carbon and release carbon dioxide on combustion. The cleanest fuel is hydrogen because the product is water which is non polluting. </li></ul>Energy
    5. 5. Endothermic <ul><li>Photosynthesis is an example of an endothermic chemical reaction. In this process, plants use the energy from the sun to convert carbon dioxide and water into glucose and oxygen. This reaction requires 15MJ of energy (sunlight) for every kilogram of glucose that is produced </li></ul>Energy

    12. 12.

    15. 15. 3. Special molecules and structures <ul><li>Special molecules called chlorophyll, a green pigment located within specialized structures called chloroplasts which provide a place for photosynthesis to occur </li></ul>Photosynthesis
    16. 16.

    17. 17. Enzyme involvement in cellular respiration What happens to what we eat? <ul><li>Special enzymes speed up the reaction where sugar (solid) substrate bonds are broken and rearranged to form the products H 2 O and CO 2 (gases) </li></ul>
    18. 18. Homeostasis <ul><li>The blood glucose level is the amount of glucose in the blood. Glucose is a sugar that comes from the foods we eat, and it's also formed and stored inside the body. It's the main source of energy for the cells of our body, and it's carried to each cell through the bloodstream. Blood glucose levels are regulated by the pancreas and the liver to maintain the delicate balance in the body. </li></ul>What happens to what we eat? Click the yellow circles for more information
    19. 19. How our bodies use glucose
    20. 20. Hyperglycemic <ul><li>High blood sugar levels happen when the body either can't make insulin (Type 1 Diabetes) or can't respond to insulin properly (Type 2 Diabetes). The body needs insulin so glucose in the blood can enter the cells of the body where it can be used for energy. In people who have developed diabetes, glucose builds up in the blood, resulting in hyperglycemia. </li></ul><ul><li>Having too much sugar in the blood for long periods of time can cause serious health problems if it's not treated. Hyperglycemia can cause damage to the vessels that supply blood to vital organs, which can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke, kidney disease, vision problems, and nerve problems in people with diabetes. </li></ul>Homeostasis
    21. 21. Hypoglycemic <ul><li>Hypoglycemia, also called low blood sugar , occurs when blood glucose drops below normal levels. When blood glucose begins to fall, glucagon—another hormone made by the pancreas—signals the liver to break down glycogen and release glucose into the bloodstream. Blood glucose will then rise toward a normal level. In some people with diabetes, this glucagon response to hypoglycemia is impaired. </li></ul>Homeostasis
    22. 22. Cellular Respiration <ul><ul><li>Aerobic Respiration </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Anaerobic Respiration </li></ul></ul>What happens to what we eat? Useful Links:
    23. 23. Aerobic Respiration <ul><li>The breakdown of sugars in the presence of oxygen to produce ATP energy, CO 2 and Water </li></ul>Cellular Respiration
    24. 24. Anaerobic Respiration <ul><li>Two Types: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Alcoholic Fermentation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lactic Acid Fermentation </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The breakdown of sugars in absence of oxygen, or “without air”, to produce ATP energy </li></ul>Cellular Respiration
    25. 25. Alcoholic Fermentation <ul><li>After sugar and starch have metabolized, pyruvic acid (coenzyme) is the end product which then teams up with NADH and undergoes a chemical reaction which yields the products alcohol, CO 2 and NAD+ </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Yeast, beer, wine and root beer </li></ul></ul>When yeast run out of oxygen, they begin to ferment which releases alcohol and CO 2 . The CO 2 causes air spaces which make the dough rise and the alcohol is burned off during baking. Anaerobic Respiration
    26. 26. Lactic Acid Fermentation <ul><li>In many cells pyruvic acid accumulates as a result of the breakdown of sugars (glycolysis), through a chemical reaction the reactants can be converted into lactic acid and NAD+ which is used to power more glycolysis </li></ul><ul><li>This process can happen in our muscles if our cells aren’t getting enough oxygen during exercise </li></ul>Anaerobic Respiration

    28. 28. Energy flows and nutrients cycle <ul><li>Energy flows from the sun to the autotrophs which do photosynthesis. Consumers like humans use the starch/sugars from plants we eat and the oxygen they provide us to breathe to produce ATP energy, CO 2 and H 2 O </li></ul>What happens to what we eat? - Energy - Nutrients
    29. 29. Energy <ul><li>Energy gets used up during chemical reactions, 1% of the suns energy gets passed on to the producers and only 10% is passed on to the higher trophic levels thereafter </li></ul>Energy Flows Energy flows and Nutrients cycle
    30. 30. Nutrients <ul><li>Nutrients flow throughout a system </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Example: CO 2 is sequestered by plants from the atmosphere, the plants use the CO 2 to make glucose and O 2 . Plants use the glucose to get energy and to make cellulose/starch to stand up tall. Humans breathe oxygen and use it for the process of cellular respiration which produces CO 2 that returns to the atmosphere and water. Additionally, when decomposers break down dead organic matter, they release CO 2 into the air and some is stored in fossil fuels. </li></ul></ul>Energy flows and Nutrients cycle
    31. 31. How are our bodies specialized to use what we eat? <ul><li>All living things are made up of cells. Our bodies are made up of a certain kind of cells and the bacteria that makes us sick are another type of cells. </li></ul><ul><li>There are two types of cells: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Eukaryotes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Prokaryotes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Which types of cells are we made up of and which type are bacteria? </li></ul></ul>

    38. 38. Animal Cells <ul><li>Animal cells are typical of the eukaryotic cell, enclosed by a plasma membrane and containing a membrane-bound nucleus and organelles . Unlike the eukaryotic cells of plants and fungi, animal cells do not have a cell wall .

    39. 39. Plant Cells <ul><li>Plants are unique among the eukaryotes, organisms whose cells have membrane-enclosed nuclei and organelles , because they can manufacture their own food. Chlorophyll , which gives plants their green color, enables them to use sunlight to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars and carbohydrates, chemicals the cell uses for fuel. They also have a cell wall . </li></ul>Cell Eukaryotes Related Links:
    40. 40. Cell boundaries <ul><li>All cells are bordered by a thin, flexible barrier, selectively permeable barrier called the plasma membrane (PM) that has two functions : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Regulates what enters and leaves the cell </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Provides protection and support for the cell </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Some cells also have “walls” </li></ul>Cell

    45. 45. Osmosis and Cells <ul><li>Osmosis plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis through the intake and loss of water . Osmosis exerts osmotic pressure on the hypertonic side causing a cell surrounded by fresh water to be flooded. The cell will burst (lysis) if it gains too much volume. </li></ul><ul><li>Blood cells in animals are isotonic and have roughly the same amount of dissolved materials as inside the cell </li></ul><ul><li>Plant cells have cell walls that prevent the cell from swelling and bursting when in contact with water </li></ul>Cell Limitations (cont.)

    51. 52. Plasma Membrane: Entry and Exit <ul><li>The membrane is a double-layered sheet called a lipid bilayer with embedded proteins and carbohydrates.
