Unit One Study Guide

Anatomy and Physiology

QuestionAnswer
name the subatomic particle that has a mass of on and no charge: neutron
name the subatomic particle that has a mass of one and a positive charge: proton
name the subatomic particle that has a mass of zero and a negative charge: electron
define atom: basic unit of matter
define molecule: two or more atoms linked by chemical bonds
define covalent bond: where an electron is shared between two atoms
define ion: an atom with a positive of negative charge
define ionic bond: transfer of electrons from one atom to another, build up of charge; opposites attract
define hydrogen bond: weak bond between molecules
define synthesis: small molecules linked into larger ones by chemical bonds
define decomposition: larger molecule, breakdown of chemical bonds, formation of smaller molecules
define isotope/radioisotope: element that has a different mass # than usual
express the following concentration is scientific notation and as a pH: 0.0001M 1x10exp-5M pH=5
express the following concentration is scientific notation and as a pH: 0.0000000000001M 1x10exp-13M pH=13
express the following concentration is scientific notation and as a pH: 0.01M 1x10exp0 pH=0
the pH scale measure the __________________ of a solution H+ concentration
what pH range(s) include acids: <7
what range(s) includes bases: >7
what range(s) includes neutral: 7
if a substance has a pH of 9, then what is its [H+] concentration? 10exp-9M
if a substance has a pH of 3, then what is its [H+] concentration? 10exp-9M
when a small amount of acid or base is added to a buffered solution what happens to the pH? why? it stays approx the same. buffer takes up and releases H+
when a small amount of acid is added to an unbuffered solution what happens to the pH? why? it goes down. acids add H+ to a solution
which of these will change the pH of a solution: HCL or NaCl? why? HCl. because it is an acid
organic molecules contain: carbon
which chemical reactions break down large molecules? decomposition
which chemical reactions use small molecules to build large ones: synthesis
name the four biological molecules and give the basic units and function for each: carbohydrates; monosaccharides; energy/building blocks lipids; fatty acids and glycerol; energy/membranes proteins; amino acids; antibodies/enzymes/transport molecules nucleic acids; nucleotides; genetic info/energy transporter
define peptide: short chain of amino acids linked by peptide bonds
define polypeptide: long chain of amino acids
define protein: two or more poly peptides linked by weak bonds
define peptide bond: covalent bond
classify and give a role for glucose: carbohydrate (monosaccharide); universal cellular fuel
classify and give a role for triglyceride: lipid; stores energy
classify and give a role for DNA: nucleic acid; genetic material
classify and give a role for ATP: nucleic acid (nucleotide); carries energy
classify and give a role for cholesterol: lipid; membrane component
classify and give a role for enzyme: protein; acts as a biological catalyst
classify and give a role for phospholipid: lipid; membrane component
classify and give a role for hemoglobin: protein; carries oxygen
classify and give a role for antibody: protein; defense agains disease
classify and give a role for glycogen: carbohydrate; stores energy in liver and muscles
classify and give a role for RNA: nucleic acid; transfers genetic material
a protein that undergoes a change in structure and loss of function is ____________ denatured
DNA is made up of: adenine, thymine, cytosine, guanine
RNA is made up of: adenine, uracil, cytosine, guanine
unsaturated fatty acids have at least one ___________ between carbons while saturated fatty acids do not. double bond
identify these enzyme terms:substrate active site product substrate: chemical entering an enzyme reaction active site: part of the enzyme that is doing the reaction product: substrate changed to product by enzyme
enzymes carry out reactions A. quickly B. slowly A
enzymes carry out reactions A. only once B. many times B
enzymes A. carry out many types of chemical reactions B. are specialists B
enzymes are named for their ____________ and usually end in the letters ____ substrates; ase

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.
