Lab 17 deals with How Living Things Acquire Energy. This can be a very broad topic since the processes of how an animal (or plant) get the energy to survive from its surroundings are very complex and varied.
At the core of all of this is the Law of Conservation on Energy. This is without a doubt one of the big ideas in all of science. All the machines that you use are an example of this law in action. Much of the work that engineers do is transferring one type of energy to another.
