Question 1

1 pts

A molecular gradient can best be described as....

a rainbow


a homogeneous solution

neighboring solutions that have unequal concentrations of molecules


Question 2

1 pts

Equilibrium with respect to gases and liquids can best be described as...

the search for social equality

the end of diffusion

molecular equality

metaphysical balance


Question 3

1 pts

In this lab, we will use dialysis tubing to....

simulate biological membranes

separate blood from urine

turn starch blue

turn starch brown


Question 4

1 pts

Biological membranes have different types of pores and channels, and different permeabilities to small molecules depending on size and charge. In this lab, you can assume that the membranes we are using are permeable to....


water and potassium iodide

complex sugars

small animals


Question 5

1 pts

Question 6

1 pts

If there is more solute (salt, sugar, ions) outside of a cell, and the cell membrane is not permeable to any of the solutes, what is likely to happen?

water will enter the cell

water will leave the cell

solutes will enter the cell

solutes will leave the cell


Question 7

1 pts

Kinetic energy is an inherent property of the atom, and therefore more complex structures such as molecules. You can actually see kinetic energy of non-living things in action under the microscope. When we visualize this, we call what we see...


Brownian motion


all of the above


Question 8

1 pts

One word to describe the effect of diffusion across a membrane, which alters the water pressure on one side of the membrane with respect to the other is....


Question 9

1 pts

When two gases diffuse towards each other down a long tube, and somewhere in the tube a white ring forms, you can conclude that...

a chemical reaction has taken place between the gases

someone forgot to clean the tube

the gases are inert

the gases were actually unable to diffuse


Question 10

1 pts

If two gases of unequal molecular mass diffuse towards one another in a closed glass tube, they are more likely to react in which part of the glass tube?

the gases would meet in the middle and react

the gases would meet closer to the start of the light gas and react

the gases would meet closer to the heavy gas and react

the gases would never react
