Concept Check 9.1
1) Both processes include glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation.
In aerobic respiration, the final electron acceptor is O2; in anaerobic
Chapter 7 & 11: Cell Membrane and Cell Communication
Cellular membranes are fluid mosaics of lipids and proteins:
Lipids and proteins are the staple ingredients in membranes. In most membranes, phospholipids are the
most abundant lipids. A phospholipid is
Chapter 4: Carbon & the Molecular Diversity of Life
Carbon has a tendency to form covalent bonds.
Carbon chains form the skeletons of most organic molecules.
Isomers: One of several compounds with the same molecular formula but different
Biology Lecture Notes:
Biology: The science dealing with life, its forms and characteristics. The branch of science that deals with
living organisms and the vital, fundamental characteristics that we associate with life.
Chapter 6 -Cell Structure and Function
1. What cell structure would allow the composition of the intracellular fluid to be different
than the extracellular fluid? Why might this be important?
The plasma membrane separates the
Discussion Questions BSC2010 Chapter 5
1. What are the biomolecules relevant for life? What function does each bring to the table?
Carbohydrates Carbs are mainly used to produce energy but also has the ability to store
Chapter 3 Discussion Questions
1. Does electronegativity exist between water molecules? Explain your response.
Oxygen is more electromagnetic than other elements, other than fluorine. Oxygen has a
partial negative charge while
Discussion Questions Chap. 2
1. How does the formation of an ionic bond differ from the formation of a covalent bond?
Ionic bonds form by the electrochemical attraction between two atoms of opposite
charges. An ionic compound

Chapter 1 Concept Questions
1) A molecule consists of atoms bonded together. Each organelle has an orderly
arrangement of molecules. Photosynthetic plant cells contain organelles called
chloroplasts. A tissue consists of a group of sim
Chapter 2 Concept Questions
1) Table salt has emergent properties because as a compound, table salt is made up
of sodium and chlorine in a fixed ratio that makes it edible due to its arrangement
and interactions of sodium and chlorine
Why are cells so small? This lab tests the relationship between diffusion and
osmosis using a substance that is exactly like a cell, agar. Virtually every living cell is
dependent on this process so its extremely important to know whats going on and
Chapter 3 Concept Questions
1) Electronegativity is the attraction of an atom for the electrons of a covalent bond.
Oxygen is more electronegative than hydrogen; the oxygen atom in H2O takes
electrons toward itself, resulting in a partial negative cha
How should the unknown microscopic organisms be classified?
Taxonomy is the field of science focused on observing and classifying organisms
based on their traits. Based on the differences between plant and animal cells taught
Chapter 6 Concept Questions
1) Stains used for light microscopy are colored molecules that bind to cell
components, affecting the light passing through, while stains used for electron
microscopy involve heavy metals that affect the be
