Homeostasis is the maintenance of a constant internal environment. In the Biology context, it means a constant body environment, for example, constant body temperature, blood glucose level. Metabolism refers to the reactions that take place in the body which allows life to be maintained. You need to have metabolism taking place in order to maintain homeostasis.
