blood is what pH 7.35 - 7.45
are blood is slightly what? alkaline

acid any substance release hydrogen atoms into a acids- they are proton donars
base they are a proton acceptor
liquid carbon dioxide in the body is fluid except in the lungs
buffer is a compond solution that will maintain a stable pH
4 major molecules in the body carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acides
carbohydrates glucose, sugars
lipids fat
proteins enzymes are proteins
nucleic acids dna and rna
enzymes canaboic/anabolic reactions in the body
ASE is an enzyme
phospholipids are water loving they are hydrophilic
lipids are hydrohobic they fear water
immunoglobulin antibody
energy in the body is ATP manin molecule that gives us engergy
compound atoms of two or more elements joined to form chemical combinations
atoms contain protons, nuetrons, electons
atomic number identifies the kind of element
atomic weight is mass of a single atom, equal # of protons plus the # of neutrons.
total # of electons in an atom equals total # of protns in the nucelus
electons from a electron cloud around the nucleus
2 electons occupy the inner level
bohr model a model resembling planets revolving around the sun; useful in visualizing the structure of an atom
an atom without a full outermost energy level is? chemically active
an atom with 8 electrons or four pairs in the outer most energy level is chemically inert
number and arragement of electrons determine whether an atoms is chemically stable
attractions between atoms are chemical bond
chemical reactions interactions between two or more in their outer most energy levels
compound consists of molecules formed by atoms of two or more elements
chemical bonds two types unite atoms into molecules; ionic/ecectrovalent, bond; formed by transger of electrons; strong electrostatic force that binds positively and geatively charges ions together
hyrdogen bond weaker than ionic or covalent bonds; results from unequal charge distribution on molecules
hydrogen bonds form when electrons are unequally sharded; example is a water molecule
polar molecues have regoins with partial electrial charges resulting from unqueal sharing of electons in the atoms.
hydrolysis is a common catabolic reaction
end products of catabolism are carbon dioxide, water , and other waste products
more than half the engery released is transferred to? ATP
chemical reaction responsible for anabolism is dehydration synthesis
water is the body's most abundant and important compond
polarity allows water to act as an effective solvent, ionizes substance in soulution
the solvent allows transoportation of essential materials throughout the body
high specific heat makes water lose and gain large amounts of heat with little change in its own temperature;enables the body to maintain a realtively contant tmeperature
high heat of vaporization water requires the absorption of significant amounts of heat to change it from liquid to a gas; allows body to dispate heat.
oxygen and carbond dioxide closely related to cellular respiration
oxygen required to complete decomposition reactions necessary for the release of energy in the body
carbon dioxide produced as a waste product and helps maintain the appropriate acid-base balance in the body
electrolytes large group of inorganic compounds that includes acids, and bases ,and salts
cations are + charge
anions are - charge
bases electrolytes that sissociate to yield hydroxide ions OH or other elctrolytes that combine with H+
pH indicates the degree of acidity or alkalinity of a soulution
pH 7 is neutrally equal amounts of H and OH
Buffers minimize changes in the conventrations of H and OH; act as reservoir for hydrogen ions
salts compund that result from chemical interactions of an acid and a base
reactions between an acid and a base to form a salt and water is a called nuetralization reaction
organic describes compounds that contain C-C or C-H bonds
types of acids nitric acid hydrochloric acid, gastic fluid, lemon juice, vinegar, wine, oragne juice, coffee, milk

3 basic types of chemical reactions are synthesis, decomposition, and exchange
synthesis is the formation of new bonds, and energy is required for the reaction to occur and the new product to form. A+B = AB
decomposition the breakdown of a complex substance into two or more simpler substances. AB = A+B+energy
exchange permits two different reactants to exchange componets and, as a result, form two new molecules AB+CD= AD+CB
