In this scenario, you could think of the phase change occurring because of the time delay between two identical waves.

Sample Midterm Questions
1. Consider the reaction, 2 A 3 B + C. Suppose that, at some time, the rate of disappearance
of A is 0.60 M min1. At that time, what are the rates (in M min1) at which B and C appear?

Chromosomal theory of inheritance
A collection of studies revealed that genes are
on chromosomes. In fact, multiple genes are
present on each chromosome.
What is a chromosome? How many do we have?
