Cell Respiration Lab
The overall equation for cellular respiration is:
C6H12O6 + 6O2 -> 6CO2 + 6H2O + energy
The energy is produced by oxidizing the glucose, and is used to convert ADP and P into ATP. Peas

Solubility and Thermodynamics
Like all nitrate salts, potassium nitrate dissolves in water. During the dissolution process,
the breaking of ionic bonds and the formation of interactions between the solvent and ions leads

Gregor Mendel: Genes, Dominance, and Segregation
Recall that Mendel used pea
plants to study traits.
Traits are characteristics that
vary from one individual to
Traits are determined by genes.
To make a karyotype, chromosomes are
photographed while the cell is undergoing
mitosis, when they are easiest to see. Grouping

Trait: Falconi anemia
Forms of the trait:
The dominant form is normal bone marrow function - in other words, no anemia.
The recessive form is Falconi anemia. Individuals affected show slow growth,
possible bone marrow failure and a high r

In weasels, black fur (B) is dominant over brown fur (b). Using the Punnett square below;
predict the genotypes and phenotypes of the offspring where the parents are both
heterozygous for the trait.
