Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Formula for glucose.

    Explanation
    The given formula C6H12O6 represents glucose, a simple sugar molecule. Glucose is an important source of energy for living organisms and is commonly found in foods like fruits, vegetables, and honey. Its chemical formula indicates that it contains 6 carbon atoms, 12 hydrogen atoms, and 6 oxygen atoms. This formula accurately represents the composition of glucose and is widely accepted in the scientific community.

    Another name for ATP is?

    Explanation
    ATP, also known as adenosine triphosphate, is a molecule that stores and provides energy for cellular processes in living organisms. It is often referred to as the "energy currency" of the cell because it transfers energy from one reaction to another. ATP consists of adenosine (a nucleotide) and three phosphate groups. When one of the phosphate groups is broken off through hydrolysis, energy is released, and ATP is converted into adenosine diphosphate (ADP). This energy is then used by cells for various functions such as muscle contraction, active transport, and synthesis of macromolecules.

    What is ATP consist of: ______+______+____ ______( spell out everything, # too )

    Explanation
    ATP, or adenosine triphosphate, is composed of three main components: adenine, ribose, and three phosphates. Adenine is a nitrogenous base, ribose is a sugar molecule, and the three phosphates are high-energy phosphate groups. These components combine to form ATP, which serves as the primary energy currency of cells. The correct answers provided in the response both accurately identify the components of ATP.

  • 4. 

    Another name for AMP is?

    Explanation
    AMP stands for adenosine monophosphate, which is a molecule that consists of adenosine and a single phosphate group. It is a nucleotide that plays important roles in cellular metabolism and energy transfer. Therefore, adenosine monophosphate is another name for AMP.

  • 5. 

    Another name for ADP is?

    Explanation
    ADP is an abbreviation for adenosine diphosphate. Adenosine diphosphate is a molecule that plays a crucial role in cellular energy metabolism. It is formed when ATP (adenosine triphosphate) loses one phosphate group, resulting in the release of energy that can be used by the cell. ADP can then be converted back into ATP through the process of phosphorylation, allowing the cell to replenish its energy stores. Therefore, adenosine diphosphate is another name for ADP.

    Name the reactants of photosynthesis(not the equation)

    Explanation
    The reactants of photosynthesis are carbon dioxide and water. These are the substances that are required for the process of photosynthesis to occur. During photosynthesis, carbon dioxide is taken in from the atmosphere through the stomata in the leaves, while water is absorbed from the roots. These reactants are then used by the plant, along with sunlight and chlorophyll, to produce glucose and oxygen through the process of photosynthesis.

  • 7. 

    Name the products of photosynthesis(not the equation)

    Explanation
    The products of photosynthesis are glucose and oxygen. Glucose is a type of sugar that is produced during the process of photosynthesis and serves as the primary source of energy for plants. Oxygen is a byproduct of photosynthesis and is released into the atmosphere. Both glucose and oxygen are essential for the survival of plants and play important roles in various biological processes.

  • 8. 

    Name the reactants of respiration(not the equation)

    Explanation
    The reactants of respiration are glucose and oxygen. Both glucose and oxygen are necessary for the process of respiration to occur. Glucose is a type of sugar that serves as the primary source of energy for cells, while oxygen is required for the oxidation of glucose to produce energy in the form of ATP. Therefore, both glucose and oxygen are essential reactants in the process of respiration.

    Organism that make its own food is______________.

    Explanation
    An organism that is able to produce its own food is known as an autotroph. Autotrophs are capable of synthesizing organic compounds from inorganic substances through processes such as photosynthesis or chemosynthesis. This ability to generate their own nutrients allows autotrophs to sustain themselves without relying on other organisms for food. Examples of autotrophs include plants, algae, and some bacteria.

  • 10. 

    Ingestive heterotroph is for_________

    Explanation
    The term "ingestive heterotroph" refers to an organism that obtains its energy by consuming organic matter from other organisms. This process involves the ingestion of food, digestion, and absorption of nutrients. Animals are classified as ingestive heterotrophs because they rely on consuming other organisms or their byproducts to obtain energy for survival and growth. They have specialized digestive systems that allow them to break down complex organic molecules into simpler forms that can be utilized by their cells.

    Which of the scientist concluded that light is needed for production of oxygen?

    • A.

      Jan van Helmont

    • B.

      Jan Ingenhousz

    • C.

      Melvin Calvin

    • D.

      Joseph Priestley

    Correct Answer
    B. Jan Ingenhousz
    Explanation
    Jan Ingenhousz concluded that light is needed for the production of oxygen. He conducted experiments in the 18th century and discovered that plants release oxygen in the presence of light. This was a significant contribution to our understanding of photosynthesis and the role of light in the process. Jan Ingenhousz's experiments paved the way for further research on the topic and helped establish the connection between light, plants, and oxygen production.

    Which of the following can affect the rate of photosynthesis? ( more than one answer )

    • A.

      Amount of H2O

    • B.

      Energy

    • C.

      Temperature

    • D.

      Air molecules

    • E.

      Intensity of light

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Amount of H2O
    C. Temperature
    E. Intensity of light
    Explanation
    The rate of photosynthesis can be affected by the amount of water available, as water is a key component for the process. Temperature also plays a role, as photosynthesis is more efficient at certain temperatures. The intensity of light is another factor, as photosynthesis requires light energy to occur. Air molecules, however, do not directly impact the rate of photosynthesis.

  • 14. 

    What color pigment absorbed the least light

    Correct Answer(s)
    green
    Explanation
    Green pigment absorbs the least light because it reflects or transmits most of the green wavelengths. When white light containing all colors of the visible spectrum hits a green pigment, it absorbs all the other colors except green, which is reflected or transmitted. This is why we perceive the pigment as green.

    • E.

      5

    Correct Answer
    D. 4
    Explanation
    There are four types of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is a pigment found in plants and other organisms that is responsible for capturing light energy during photosynthesis. The four types of chlorophyll are chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, chlorophyll c, and chlorophyll d. Each type of chlorophyll absorbs light at different wavelengths, allowing plants to utilize a wider range of the light spectrum for photosynthesis.

    ____energy electrons helps reaction to happen.

    Correct Answer
    high
    Explanation
    High energy electrons help reactions to happen because they have more potential energy, allowing them to overcome activation barriers and participate in chemical reactions. These electrons can transfer their energy to other molecules, breaking or forming bonds and facilitating the conversion of reactants into products. The higher the energy of the electrons involved, the more likely the reaction is to occur.

    Correct Answer
    red orange yellow green blue violet
    red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet
    red orange yellow green blue purple
    Explanation
    The given answer lists the colors of the rainbow in the correct order, starting with red and ending with violet. It also includes the colors red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet twice, and adds the color purple at the end. However, purple is not a part of the traditional colors of the rainbow, which are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet. Therefore, the answer is incorrect.
