  11. The substance CH3COOH dissociates in water leaving leaving some CH#COOH as well as some H+ and CH3CHOO- ata pH of 2.4. If a small amount of the base KOH is added to the solution the pH remains at 2.4. What is true of theis system?
    c the solution is a buffer
  12. Individual skeletal muscle cells are connected by junctions that allow contraction forces to be transmitted cell to cell on through to the tendons at each end. These junctions also prevent cells from being separated by forces generated during contraction. This type of cell junction is

  14. Cells of the intestinal epithelium must be able to prevent movement of molecules past the epithelium except for those that are transported through the cytoplasm. the cellular structure that seals the gaps between cells to precent diffusion around the vcells is
    D tight junction
  15. Increased permeability of membranes can be caused by
    c increased percentage of unsaturated fatty in the membrane phospholipids

  17. An example of homeostasis that occurs in human is illustrated which of the following ?
    D a and B-increase in heart rate when blood vessels dilate, the liver absorbing glucose durng meals, then secreting glucose between meals.
  18. The sodium potassium pump is an important example of active transport in cells. Whch of the follwoing is true about the Na/K pump?
    B ATP energizes a single protein that moves sodium and potassium through the cell membrane.
  19. Science is described as a way of knowing the facts about naturally occuring events. Which of the following must be true for any scientific study
    D a and B you must be able to observe of measure the phenom, you must be able to make a prediction that can be rejected by your observations

    C they act as signal molecules (hormones)
  22. A hypothesis in science is
    a general explanation about how some natural process should work
  23. Which of the following is true for mixtures in the body?
    C a solutions contains colute particles that are too small to separate from the solvent.
  24. Tandom motion of molecules that cannot used to perform work is defined as
    • A heat
    • (I wrongly answered kinetic energy)
  25. Carbon monoxide is a dangerous nonpolar gas emitted during incomplete combustiopn. In a closed environment breathing CO will squickly be absorbed into the blood. What is the mechanism by which CO gets into the blood?
    Simple diffusion across the lung epithelia
  26. Important functions that the phospolipids in cell membranes provide include
    C providing a selective barrier to movement of molecules across the membrane
  27. A doctor treating a patient with high blood pressure observes that reducing salt intake lowers the patient's mean arterial pressure. The doctor notes that restricing salt in the diet also produces a drop in blood pressure. The doctor concludes that a significant contributor to high blood pressure is excess dietary salt intake. this is an example of
    A inductive reasoning
  28. After completing a marathon in hot weather, a runner rapidly drinks 1 liter of filtered water to try to rehadrate. The runner's plasma ion concentration immediately drops to 250 milliosmoles in contrast to the cells at 350 mO due to dehydration. What is the effect of this imbalance?
    C Water will diffuse into the tissues casusing swelling and damage to some cells.
  29. A fragment of a chromosome has the nuceeotide sequence CCAATGGATACTAAA. What does the mRNA made from this fragment look like?
    • (remember T and A, Gail and Crook)
  30. The pH of a solution changes from 7.6 to 5.6 what is true about the change is pH?
    • A there is a 100x increase in hydrogen ions in the solution
    • (change of 2 zeroes, more H is more acid)
