Q 10 Practice Problems The Q 10 temperature coefficient is a measure of the rate of change of a biological or chemical system as a consequence of increasing the temperature by 10°C. It is useful in studying cold blooded organisms because it expresses the temperature dependence of a biological process. There are many examples where the Q 10 value is used, from the calculation of the nerve conduction velocity to the calculation of muscle fiber contraction velocity. In fact, the Q 10 value can be applied to chemical reactions and physiological processes in most cold blood animal systems. The Q10 is calculated using the formula listed below, which is found on the AP Formula Sheet. Q 10 is a unitless quantity, as it is simply the factor by which a rate changes for every 10 o C increase in body temperature. Answer the following questions on the google form found on Schoology. 1. Determine the Q 10 value for the heart rate in Daphnia , the water flea.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
