Vanessa Reapor Biology 111, Section 23 April 17, 2009 Exercise 3 Cellular Respiration 1. Suppose someone in your group forgot to include KOH in the respirometer. What effect would this have on the data you collect compared to data collected when KOH is not omitted? Explain. KOH absorbs carbon dioxide. Therefore, if KOH was not included in the respirometer, carbon dioxide cannot be measured. This missing element would also lead to inaccurate measurements. 2. Would an endothermic organism that lives in a cold climate spend more or less energy than members of the same species living in a warm climate? Explain.

Unformatted text preview: An endothermic organism that lives in a cold climate would spend the same amount of energy as an organism living in warm climate. Either way an endothermic organism will produce the needed heat from within to adjust to temperature changes. 17. Specifically, how is the oxygen we breathe used by cells? What happens to the electron transport system of cells deprived of oxygen? Cells use the oxygen we breathe through cellular respiration. If the electron transport system is deprived of oxygen, the system cannot operate, and therefore the organism will die because of the lack of ATP....
