Biology Q1 Test
Terms in this set (29)
DO vs BOD
DO is dissolved oxygen, BOD is Biological Oxygen Demand
Nine Water Quality Tests
BOD, DO, Fecal Coliform, Turbidity, pH, Nitrates, Phosphates, Total Dissolved Solids, Temperature.
BOD is measured in
DO is measured in
pH is measured in
Nitrates are measured in
Phosphates are measured in
pH Scale, 1-14
Fecal Coliform is measured in
number per 100 mL sample
Turbidity is measured in
Jackson Turbidity Units
Total Dissolved Solids is measured in
WQI calculations, WQI calculations minus one test
multiply Q value by the Weight. Add. Minus one, Total divided by ( one minus weight)
Find mean, subtract mean from each number, square every number, find that mean, square root.
Study Taxa Groups.
How does Oxygen get in the water?
Aeration, Photosynthesis, Diffusion
Are found in feces, used to determine watershed health
Slower moving water but higher turbulence, more life.
Area of land in which water all drains to the same place.
Lipids, Carbohydrates, Proteins, Nucleic Acids
In Biology, everything is a sample
Electronegativity increases from left to right, down to up.
monosaccharides,polysaccarides and disacarides
Waxes, fats, phospholipids, and sterols
Ways molecules react
a. functional-group transfer from one molecule to another,
b. electron transfer --stripped from one molecule and given to another,
c. rearrangement of internal bonds converts one type of organic molecule to another,
d. condensation of two molecules into one,
e. cleavage of one molecule into two.
polymers of amino acids
Nucleic acids are
polymers of nucleotides
Base(ATCG) Phosphate Group, 5 ring
