### Applying to biological and organic examples

How will we be required to relate thermochemistry / thermodynamics to organic and biological examples?

Could be things such as how much a person is heating up during exercise and how much water they need to sweat in order to keep their bodies at a good temperature.

We may have to apply our knowledge of thermodynamic processes to biological examples such as ATP hydrolysis or the breaking down of glucose. Just an idea because Dr. Lavelle covered these examples in class a couple times.
