Reaction 1 depicts the conversion of phosphoenol pyruvate to pyruvate.
Phosphate is a part of many high-energy compounds in biological systems. Examples include ATP (adenosine triphosphate)) and GTP (guanosine triphosphate).
Choose the correct change in free energy in the following conversion. (The products have higher free energy than the reactants)
Adenosine + Phosphate –> AMP
