Re: Increase in free energy in glycolysis

... becoming greater). Thus as the chaos increases the free energy continues to increase. The ATP usage in the two steps: hexokinase making glucose-6-phosphate and PFK1 making Fructose-1,6-Bisphosphate is made to overcome the activation energy of the subsequent step. I don't know what you understanding ...
