Kinetic energy: energy from movement. An object has more kinetic energy when it is moving faster or has larger entropy. Potential energy: energy at rest as the result of positioning or how a molecule is bonded together (chemical potential energy). Anabolism: The building of compounds, typically through macromolecule synthesis that occurs in living organisms. Catabolism: The breaking down of compounds, typically organism molecules that occur in living organisms.
Work Step by Step
Anabolism and catabolism put together is referred to as metabolism.
