Outline 2 states that we should be able to calculate the pH in a variety of different applied examples. One of which is death in a biological system. I don't really recall this is lecture or in the book. If anyone has notes from lecture or a page in the book let me know! Thank you

I think it's talking about how CO2 can cause respiratory acidosis, which can cause death from blood pH becoming too low/acidic.

It might be referring to that time in lecture when he talked about the ATP concentration in healthy muscle tissue and dead muscle tissue and we were supposed to find the expected equilibrium concentrations for ADP and Pi in the dead tissue

Yea, I'm pretty sure that in lecture he said that something dying means that it goes to equilibrium.

I'm pretty sure it is the atp production but i'm sure he'll bring up another example if we're wrong
