Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is energy metabolism?

    • A.

      Energy that is used during metabolic reactions weather it's anabolic or catabolic

    • B.

      Rate at which energy is derived from food

    • C.

      Calories used to maintain body composition

    • D.

      Rate at which calories are digested

    Correct Answer
    A. Energy that is used during metabolic reactions weather it's anabolic or catabolic
    Explanation
    Energy metabolism refers to the process by which the body converts food into energy through metabolic reactions. These reactions can be either anabolic, involving the building up of molecules, or catabolic, involving the breaking down of molecules. Energy is utilized during these reactions to support various bodily functions and activities. This process is essential for maintaining the body's energy balance and ensuring that it has enough energy to carry out its daily tasks.

    What is basal metabolisim?

    • A.

      Rate at which body uses energy

    • B.

      Rate at which energy is derived from body

    • C.

      Sum of all involuntary actions used to sustain life

    Correct Answer
    C. Sum of all involuntary actions used to sustain life
    Explanation
    Basal metabolism refers to the sum of all involuntary actions that are necessary to sustain life. These actions include processes like breathing, circulation, and maintaining body temperature. Basal metabolism is responsible for the majority of energy expenditure in the body, even at rest. It represents the minimum amount of energy required to keep the body functioning properly.

  • 3. 

    What is the normal BMI

    • A.

      18-24.5

    • B.

      30-39

    • D.

      25-29

    Correct Answer
    D. 25-29
    Explanation
    The normal BMI range is typically considered to be between 18 and 24.9. However, the given options do not include this range. The closest option is 25-29, which falls under the overweight category. While this range is not considered normal, it is still within a relatively healthy range and may not necessarily indicate a significant health risk.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    ATP  is ?

    • A.

      Amount of calories used in metabolism

    • B.

      Amount of energy intake compared to amount expended

    • C.

      Non exercise actions

    • D.

      Amount of energy used

    Correct Answer
    B. Amount of energy intake compared to amount expended
    Explanation
    ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is a molecule that serves as the primary energy source for cellular processes. It is responsible for storing and releasing energy within cells. The correct answer, "Amount of energy intake compared to amount expended," accurately describes ATP as it represents the balance between the energy taken in through food and the energy expended by the body. This balance is crucial for maintaining proper energy levels and overall metabolic function.
