Chapter 7 Questions
1.) Anabolic and endogenic are the two words we associate with photosynthesis.
2.) Catabolic an exergonic the two words we associate with cellular respiration.
3.) Photosynthesis: 6
Chapter 20 Questions
1.) Humans have more eukaryotic cells.
2.) The two characteristics viruses display that living organisms display are that they are made of
proteins and glycoproteins like ce
Chapter 2: Basic Chemistry
2.1 Chemical Elements
Matter is defined as anything that has mass and occupies space.
Matter exists in three states: solid, liquid, and gas.
All matter (both living and non-living) is composed of elements.
An element is
Chapter 9 &10 Questions-
1. Mitosis and Meiosis are the two types of cell division in humans.
2. Somatic cells reproduce using mitosis.
3. Human somatic cells need to reproduce for growth and repair.
4. Meiosis the type of cell divisio
Chapter 5 Questions
1.) A selectively permeable plasma membrane means that it only allows certain molecules to
pass through the membrane.
3.) Cholesterol helps prevent freezing, makes it more fluid.
5.) Charged molecules have a difficult time pass
Chapter 6 Questions
1. Kinetic: Running; Potential: waiting at the start line to start a race; Chemical: eating
2. Plants convert light energy to chemical energy through the process of photosynthesis.
3. Energy i
Chapter 8 Questions
During cellular respiration, glucose is broken down into CO2 and H2O.
Cellular respiration: 6O2+ C6H12O12 CO2 + H2O+ATP
Photosynthesis: 6CO2+6H2O 6O2+C6H12O12
The two words associated wi
3. Central dogma of biology is how DNA creates our phenotypes; DNA to RNA =
transcription, RNA to a Protein = translation.
4. The two parts of the central dogma are transcription and translation.
5. There are 20 amino acids.
6. The two purines of DN

Chapter 7 Summary
7.1 Photosynthetic Organisms
Photosynthesis= converts solar energy into chemical energy of a carbohydrate.
Photosynthetic organisms- plants, algae, cyanobacteria =autotrophs, produce own food.
Chapter 6 Summary
6.1 Cells and the Flow of Energy
A. Forms of Energy
Energy is capacity to do work; cells continually use energy to develop, grow, repair, reproduce, etc.
Kinetic energy is energy of motion; all moving objects have kinetic energy.
Chapter 4 Summary
4.1 Cellular Level of Organization
Cells are the basic unit of life, Cell theory - all organisms are made of cells (structure and function)
- Cells range in size from one millimeter down to one micrometer.
-Cells need a surface
Chapter 5 Summary
5.1 Plasma Membrane Structure and Function
Components of the Plasma Membrane
Plasma membrane= phospholipid bilayer with proteins and cholesterol.
Phospholipids=amphipathic molecules; nonpolar tails (hydrophobic) face inward, polar head
Chapter 8 Summary
8.1 Cellular Respiration
Involves many metabolic pathways that break down carbohydrates with buildup of ATP.
consumes oxygen, produces CO2; because oxygen is required, cellular respiration is aerobic.
involves the complete breakdown
The Cell Cycle
-The cell cycle includes stages from the first division to when daughter cells divide; when a cell is getting
ready for division, it grows larger, the number of chromosomes doubles, and DNA replicates.
Most of a c
Meiosis & Mitosis Lab
The purpose of this lab was to apprehend the differences between the processes of mitosis and
meiosis, and how both types of cell division occur.
Mitosis is asexual cell reprodu
AP Biology M&Ms Lab
The purpose of this lab was to use chi squared to figure out if the data observed was similar
enough to the expected data to conclude that they are fairly comparable.
Chi squared is a techni
This lab was intended to teach us that water is much more unique compared to all other
substances. Water is a polar molecule that interacts differently, the surface tension created by
hydrogen bonds contributes to the food coloring mixing in the w
AP Biology- Diffusion and Osmosis Lab
The purpose of this lab is to understand how Diffusion allows certain molecules to move down a
concentration gradient without the use of ATP, energy. In fact, we also observe osmosis
Chapter 4 Questions
1.) Bacteria are larger than viruses.
2.) Viruses are larger than amino acids.
3.) Light passed through the slide, allowing it to be visible through the magnified lens.
5.) A eukaryotic cell has a nucleus
Plant Pigment Chromatography
The purpose of this lab was to comprehend the concept of plant pigments; how plant
chromatography separates and identifies pigments and other molecules that make up the
AP Biology- Density and Molarity lab
The purpose of this lab was to understand how molarity is found, how to make a
mole of a substance, and how to make a molar solution. Also, we conducted this
lab to show comprehend wh
Cellular Respiration Lab
The purpose of this lab was to compare the rate of cellular respiration between germinating and
non-germinating beads at two different room temperatures.
