In this lesson on Metabolism of Food, which is part of Unit 4 Area of Study 2 for VCE Chemistry, you will learn about:
- general principles of metabolism of food involving enzyme-catalysed chemical reactions with reference to the breakdown of large biomolecules in food by hydrolytic reactions to produce smaller molecules
- the subsequent synthesis of large biologically important molecules by condensation reactions of smaller molecules.
Overview of Metabolism of Food
This video will explain key concepts in relation to metabolism.
