Which of the following statements regarding muscle fibers is false?
Training usually converts one type of muscle fiber into another.
Which of the following statements regarding fast-twitch muscles is false?
Fast-twitch muscles produce more ATP per glucose that slow-twitch muscles
Which of the following statements regarding photosynthesis and cellular respiration is true?
Photosynthesis occurs in chloroplasts, and cellular respiration occurs in mitochondria
The processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration are complementary. During these energy conversions, some energy is
lost in the from of heat.
Which of the following statements regarding cellular respiration is false?
Cellular respiration is a single chemical reaction with just one step
A kilocalorie is defined as
the quantity of heat needed to raise the temperature of 1 kg of water by 1oC.
The label on the box of breakfast cereal lists one serving as containing 200 calories per serving. How many calories are actually in one serving?
In biological systems, an important enzyme involved in the regulation of redox reactions is
During cellular respiration, electrons move through a series of election carrier molecules. Which of the following statements about this process is true?
Molecular oxygen is reduced when it accepts electrons and forms water
Which of the following options lists the stages in cellular respiration in the correct order?
glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation
A drug is tested in the laboratory and is found to create holes in both mitochondrial membranes. Scientists suspect that the drug will be harmful to human cells because it will inhibit
the citric acid cycle and oxidative phophorylation.
Which of the following is a result of glycolysis?
conversion of glucose to two three-carbon compounds
The mitochondrial cristae are an adaption that
increases the space for more copies of the electron transport chain and ATP synthase complexes.
Which of the following processes produces the most ATP per molecule of glucose oxidized?
Muscle soreness associated with strenuous exercise is at least partly due to
the presence of lactate produced during fermentation in muscle cells.
A child is born with a rare disease in which mitochondria are missing from skeletal muscle cells. However, the muscles still function. Physicians find that
the muscles contain large amounts of lactate following even mild physical exercise.
Some friends are trying to make win in their basement. They've added yeast to a sweet grape juice mixture and have allowed the yeast to grow. After several days they find that sugar levels in the grape juice have dropped, but there's no alcohol in the mixture. The most likely explanation is that
the mixture needs less oxygen, because yeast only produce alcohol in the absence of oxygen.
The conversion of CO2 and H2O into organic compounds using energy from light is called
(See paragraph page 7) The method of weight loss described for Fat Away shows that the drug is acting as a metabolic
