Abstract

When muscle contracts, it converts the energy from chemical reactions into useful mechanical work and into heat. Those of us who study energetics try to learn about contraction by investigating the chemical reactions and heat and work production. The principle that is the basis of our studies is that when a reaction occurs it is accompanied by an energy change.
