Description

Energy Changes in Biochemical Reactions outlines some of the principles of classical and of molecular-statistical energetics. An effort has been made to delineate clearly the axioms of each of these branches of energetics and to show how some of the theorems may be developed from these axioms. Finally, some of the ideas of energetic have been applied to a few biochemical problems to illustrate the types of insight which this branch of science provides for understanding and predicting. It is hoped that a reader who has conscientiously worked his way through this volume will acquire not only a cocktail-party knowledge of thermodynamics but will be able to apply it to some simple biochemical or chemical reactions.
