Homework Help: BioChemistry

Posted by Liz on Monday, September 14, 2009 at 10:06am.

The process of catabolism releases free energy, some of which is stored as ATP and some of which is lost as heat to the surroundings. Explain how these observations are consistent with the fact that catabolic pathways are essentially irreversible.

I really don't know. I even researched catabolic pathways and I'm still not sure how to answer this. Help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
