When we say a bonded substance is more stable, it means that it has less energy than a the total of its atoms freely floating around. Part of the total energy from the composite are stored in chemical bonds, which makes the resulting product has lower energy. When a catabolic reaction occurs, the large molecule is broken into smaller molecules with the ...

why electrons from different elements have different energy in their ground state The way to think about this is that the potential energy (which relates to the electromagnetic force) each electron experiences is different in each atom simply because there are different numbers of protons and different numbers of electrons in the atom. So the basic Bohr ...
