fluid portion of the cytoplasm

The end product of glycolysis is:

two pyruvate molecules

The products of glycolysis are:

(Picture1) Based on the information provided in this future, what event contributes directly to the creation of a proton gradient across the thylakoid membrane?

The flow of electron through electron transport chain II

Where does the O2 released during photosynthesis come from?


At the end of glycolysis, the original carbons of the glucose molecule form:

two molecules of pyruvate

What is the final electron acceptor in cellular respiration?


All of the following are true statements about ATP EXCEPT that it is:

synthesized only within mitochondria

Oxygen is necessary for cellular respiration because oxygen:

combines with carbon dioxide and water to form glucose.

Which of the following processes occurs in the cytoplasm?


Which of the following is NOT true of chlorophyll?

It is found in mitochondria

All of the following compounds are necessary constituents (reactants) for photosynthesis EXCEPT:


Albino corn has no chlorophyll. You would expect albino corn seedlings to:

fail to thrive because they cannot capture light energy

Most reactants in the body occur too slowly to sustain life. This is because:

many reactions require large inputs of activation energy

Which of these statements regarding enzymes is FALSE?

Enzymes provide energy for the reactions they catalyze

four molecules of ATP, 10 of NADH, and two of FADH2

Which of the following most closely matches the correct order of the main events of cellular respiration?

glycolysis, Krebs cycle, ETC, major ATP production

Which of the following processes occurs in a membrane?
