Lecture Exam 1

Chapters 1-4

Chaper 1: Biology Is the science field that studies life.
Life All living organism share 6 basic common festive characteristics. Is organized from the simple levels/atoms to the most complex level
Prokaryotes vs Eukaryotes There are 2 different cells are used of the domestic of life. atoms & molecules
Levels of Biological Organization 1 : Atomic to Species to Organism level Biosphere level
Major components of ATOMS Carbon (C), Hydrogen (H), Oxygen (O), Nitrogen (N).
Atoms are consisted 96% by Carbon (C), Hydrogen (H), Oxygen (O), Nitrogen (N). By lbs of each human being .
Biological Organization Level 2 : Atoms to Molecules Molecules H-H Same species of molecules.
Compound Molecules H-O-H Different species of molecules.
Biological Organization Level 3: Building Blocks of Life There are more than 200 different types of CELLS . Ex: Brain Cells , Heart Cells, Bone Cells , Skin Cells , Liver Cells
Biological Organization Level 4: TISSUES There only 4 different types TISSUES. 1. Epithelial Tissues (ET) 2. Connective Tissues (CT) 3. Muscle Tissues (MT) 4. Nervous Tissues (NT)

Catabolism chemical reaction used to BREAK DOWN fuel molecules
Anabolism chemical reaction to BUILD SOMETHING molecules
Photosynthesis Set of chemical reactions that are used by cells to produce fine molecues (sugars) to harnest energy
Homeostasis Ability to maintain a constant/steady internal environment (body tempreature).
Homeostasis pt2 When external tempreature rises/hot days blood vessels dilate/constrict dissipate
sweat glands use to cool down skin surface when facing rise heat tempreature
1. Sensory receptors they dect the stimuli
2. Control center receptors is sent to the control center
3. Motor response issues a command
3 purposes of producing new cells: 1. Reproduction 2. Growth 3. Tissue Repair
2 signs of why there are small cells? 1. Easier for cells to obtain nutrients to oxygen 2. Easier for cells to dispose celluar waste & carbon dioxide
All living organisms evolution usage on Earth shares a common Ancerstory Is Driven by Natural Selection
All living organisms pt2 usage on Earth have 1 of 2 types of cells: 1. Prokayotic Cells 2. Eukaryotic Cells
3 domain of life for All Living Organisms 1. Archace - ( Prokayotic Cells) 2. Bacteria- ( Prokayotic Cells) 3. Eukarya- ( Eukaryotic Cells)
More "advanced " cells Eukaryotic cells
4 kingdoms classification under the domain to Eukaryotic cells: 1. Protists 2. Plants 3. Fungi 4. Animals/Human Beings: (Tree of Life)

Chapter 2: Chemistry of Life pt 1 & pt 2 Biochemistry- Chemistry applied to life. Field of science studing interaction bewtween ATOMS (Blocks of Matter)
When ATOMS come together to formcreate 3 types of interactions: 1. Hydrogen Bonds <Chemical Bonds> 2. Iconic Bonds <Chemical Bonds> 3. Covalent Bonds <Chemical Bonds> (strongest interactions)
Concept of the Potential of Hydrogen (PH) scale - is to measure the concentration of Hydrogen ions in a to measure the concentration of free floating Hydrogen cations is measured by a scale system called PH.
Consistance of 3 subatomic particles that makes Atoms: 1. Protons 2. Neutrons 3. Electrons
Protons They carry Postive charge (+). Determines the atoms
Neutrons They carry no charge Netural (=). Dilate the existance or Isotopes
Electrons They carry Negative charge (-). Mediate chemical between the atoms
Protons & Neutrons- Are located in the nucleus of an atom
Electrons- Travel around the nucleus in orbits
Subatomic Particles- smaller than an atoms
Periodic Element number 6 Carbon has : 6 Protons 6 Neutrons 6 Electrons
Atomic Number- (6) C Reflect the number of protns in the nucleus of an atom. The Atomic Number cannot change for any atom
Atomic Weight/Mass- C (12) The sum of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of an atoms
Atom number 6: C Atomic Weight/Mass 12: has 6 protons (+) has 6 neutons (=) has 6 electrons (-)
For the Atomic Number for an atom: the number of protons (+) cannot change the number of neutrons (=) can change the number of electrons (-) cannot change
6 C 12 = 6 neutron 12-6=6
6 C 13= 7 Neutrons 13-6=7
6 C 14 = 8 Neutrons 14-6=8
Octet Rule: 8 desired/optimum number electrons on the second orbit of an atoms
Covalent Bond- Are the strongest type of chemical bonds among the 3 subatomic particles atoms types, Because electrons are shared bewteen the 2 binding parthership.
Hyrogen Bonds for Na and Cl they allow sodium (Na) and Chloride (Cl) to dissociate from 1 another in water. Also allow NaCl to dissolve in water.
1st family of macromolecules is called : Lipids * 3 different types of lipids:* 1st type : Triglycerides (Neutral Fat) 2nd type : Phopholipids (Water-Loving Fat) 3rd type : Steriods ( Drug Hormone/Cholestorol Enhancer )
Reason for the Building of Fatty Acid Molecules is due to the pressure of Double Bond between 2 neighboring carbon
Phospholids has 2 parts part 1 Water Soluble - Hydrophlic part 2 Fat Soluble- Lipophilic
Steroids are build from cholesterol has 2 types of sex hormones <powerful to manipulate phenotypes> 1. Testoerones (Male) 2. Estrogen (Female)

Sutaining life means Ability to maintain homeostasis. Ability to generate new cells: for reproduction, growth, and tissue repair
Why there 2 signs of small cells? 1. Easier for cells to obtain nutrient to oxygen 2. Easier for cells to dispose celluar waste & carbon dixoide
Surface Area When the size of a cell grows
Volume Area When its volume increase much more signficant then its surface area exchanges
An instrument to see cells and the instrument is called microscope
