When Beaker A was heated with rennet the proteins broke down and the milk began to curd as a result of this process. Beaker B was to alkalotic for this process to occur due to the bleach additive, and Beaker C was never heated which disrupted the process (Betts, 2016). 3. Explain the role of the liver, gallbladder, and bile within the digestive system. How does having your gallbladder removed affect your diet and digestion? The liver produces bile and the gallbladder stores the bile. The function of bile is to emulsify lipids. Most people who have their gallbladder removed do not have any problems. But some people may have difficulty digesting fatty foods, chronic diarrhea, or bile stones (Lewis, 2016).

    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.
