Atomic and Molecular Interactions and Stability

Module Summary
Interactions on the atomic and molecular level are fundamental to understanding the most basic aspects of biology. It is important for students to understand the properties of matter, radioactivity, exothermic/endothermic reactions, and solubility in order to be able to connect this to why and how these things may affect living organisms. This knowledge can contribute to
overall knowledge of not just how cells regulate intracellular chemical composition, but also why, and what the impact would be if they were not able to do so.
