Cell Culture 2 Questions
Q1. Describe the status of your cells. (Shape of cells, percent confluency, color of the media,
Cells are diamond shaped and somewhat clumped, have about an 80-85% confluency, and the
media is a red-pink like color.
Gene Expression 3: RT-PCR
Q1. Why is it important to start out with the same quantity of RNA in each synthesis
It is important to start out with the same quantity of RNA in each synthesis tube because it
keeps everything the same and doesnt cause an
Q1. Why is a blank cell measurement needed? Explain why the blank cell for carvone
contains only air.
A blank cell measurement is needed to measure the background light that may get in the way of
other measurements. This number will
Q1. How do the cells differ in appearance between brightfield and phase contrast? Which mode
gives you the most information?
There is a slight difference in brightfield and phase contrast. The phase contrast mode gives the
most information because it is t
Enzyme Kinetics Lab Questions
Q1. What should the absorbance spectrum of the reference cuvette look like?
It should be a straight line at 0.
Q2. When you have produced a publishable plot of your standard curve, including a trendline,
paste a snipped image

INTERVIEW WITH GUEST: POTASSIUM (K)
1. Good evening Mr. Potassium! Thank you for joining me today, and participating in this interview for
Chemistry Fair. We are thrilled to have you! How are you doing this evening? Are you doing O(K)?
Density = mass of substance/ volume of substance

Abstract Measuring Force
In this experiment we described a force as a vector in terms of its magnitude and
direction. We used LabView to calibrate a sensor, computed the components of a vector quantity,
and used Newtons first Law to relate forces on a sta
In this experiment we performed a chemotaxis assay on C. elegans from two strains, one
wild type and one mutant, to investigate the genetic basis of learning and behavior. We were able
to culture C. elegans, differentiate between the pellet and the supern
Q1. Which channel is active?
Q2. What units are displayed in this active channel?
Q3. What kind of signal is received from the sensor? How do you think this signal is
converted to the units displayed?
The signal that goes
Bite Force 2
Q1. Did you decide to exclude certain data points from your analysis? Is so, why?
Yes, because they may have affected the tread line.
Q2. What is your first impression of this regression line? Does bite force correlate with
body mass in a lin

Q1. Why is the maximum isometric force of a striated muscle dependent on its crosssectional area but not its length or even its mass?
This is because the mass does not tell how st
