BI Lab 7

energy the capacity to do work
cellular respiration the process of transferring energy from carbohydrates (or other organic molecules) to ATP
ATP supplies the energy needed for many biochemical reactions
C6H12O6 -> 6CO2 + 6H20 + 36ATP (glucose + oxygen -> carbon dioxide + water + energy) formula for aerobic respiration
aerobic respiration an energy releasing, oxygen dependent metabolic pathway that takes place in the mitochondria of the cell
anaerobic respiration produces ATP from carbohydrates without any requirement for oxygen
alcoholic fermentation one form of anaerobic respiration, only two molecules of ATP are released per glucose molecule; however, this is sufficient energy to maintain the metabolism of organisms (such as yeast)
C6H12O6 -> 2CH3CH2OH + 2CO2 + 2ATP (glucose -enzymes-> ethanol + carbon dioxide + energy) formula for anaerobic respiration
6CO2 + 12H2O -> C6H12O6 + 6O2 + 6H2O (carbon dioxide + water -light energy/chlorophyll-> glucose + oxygen + water) formula for photosynthesis
photosynthetic pigments involved in the initial capture of light energy
chlorophylls photosynthetic pigments which primarily absorb violet, blue, and red wavelengths
carotenoids absorb wavelengths of light not absorbed by chlorophyll a; present in plants and some algae
paper chromatography allows the pigments to be separated based on their different physical characteristics
solubility how well it dissolves in the given solvent
chromatogram the final product, showing separate pigments

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
