AP BIOLOGY 5 An experiment was conducted to measure the reaction rate of the human salivary enzyme α -amylase. Ten mL of a concentrated starch solution and 1.0 mL of α -amylase solution were placed in a test tube. The test tube was inverted several times to mix the solution and then incubated at 25 0 C. The amount of product (maltose) present was measured every 10 minutes for an hour. The results are given in a table below. a) Graph the data and calculate the rate of the reaction for the time period of 0-30 minutes. b) Explain why a change in the reaction was observed after 30 minutes. c) Draw and label another line on the graph to predict the results if the concentration of α -amylase was doubled. Explain your predicted results. d) Identify TWO environmental factors that can change the rate of an enzyme-mediated reaction. Discuss how each of these two factors would affect the reaction rate of the enzyme. 1989: Explain what occurs during the Krebs (citric acid) cycle and electron transport by describing the following: a) The location of the Krebs cycle and electron transport chain in the mitochondria. b) The cyclic nature of the reactions in the Krebs cycle. c) The production of ATP and reduced coenzymes during the cycle. d) The chemiosmotic production of ATP during electron transport 1993: Membranes are important structural features of cells. (a) Describe how membrane structure is related to the transport of materials across a membrane. (b) Describe the role of membranes in the synthesis of ATP in either cellular respiration or photosynthesis. (1993) Many physiological changes occur during exercise. (a) Design a controlled experiment to test the hypothesis that an exercise session causes short-term increases in heart rate and breathing rate in humans. (b) Explain how at least three organ systems are affected by this increased physical activity and discuss interactions among these systems. 2000 Feedback mechanisms are used by organisms to maintain the steady-state physiological condition known as homeostasis. Choose three of the following and for each, explain how feedback mechanisms maintain homeostasis. a) Blood glucose concentration b) Calcium ion concentration in blood c) Body temperature in mammals d) Osmolarity of the blood e) Pulse rate in mammals 2001 In biological systems, structure and function are related. Choose three of the following components of organ systems. alveolus villus sarcomere capillary nephron neuron a) For each component, describe the structure of the component and explain how that structure is responsible for the function of that component. b) For the three components that you choose in part a, explain how the structure of the component contributes to the functioning of the organ system to which it belongs. 1990: The results below are measurements of cumulative oxygen consumption by germinating and dry seeds. Gas volume measurements were corrected for changes in temperature and pressure.

    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.
